Carisbrooke Shipping signs major shipbuilding contract with Thecla Bodewes Shipyards for a diesel-electric vessel

UK shipowner Carisbrooke Shipping has signed a shipbuilding contract with Dutch shipbuilder Thecla Bodewes Shipyards for the construction of a 7,280 DWT Labrax-class diesel-electric multipurpose dry cargo vessel.

The construction of the Labrax 7,280 DWT multipurpose dry cargo vessel represents a significant investment by Carisbrooke Shipping in the renewal of our fleet, which will play a critical role in enhancing global shipping operations for Carisbrooke Shipping.

The diesel-electric propulsion system on board the Labrax 7,280 DWT vessel, in combination with the advanced power-management system minimizes energy losses, reduces overall fuel consumption and reduces CO2 emissions. The result has already been proven in the performance of the first two newbuilds of the series. In addition, the installed propulsion power is considerably lower compared to ships of equal cargo capacity and with conventional propulsion.

The 118.60m Labrax vessel is planned to be delivered in 2026.
