EasyMax - building the new standard for sustainable shipping

Follow the contruction of 'EasyMax 3' and all people working on Wagenborg's new standard for sustainable shipping.

EasyMax in brief

The EasyMax concept is a multi-purpose vessel with a cargo capacity of 14,000 tons and was jointly developed by Royal Wagenborg and Royal Niestern Sander. Wagenborg was awarded the KVNR Maritime Shipping Award in 2017 for this ship design, partly due to its superior fuel efficiency. The Egbert Wagenborg and Máxima have now proven themselves as sustainable and successful ship types and, together with her future sisters, will continue to contribute to Wagenborg Shipping's position as a leading multipurpose shipping company. On this page we will follow the construction of the third EasyMax.
