UECC has been awarded a new contract by SCANIA for the carriage of their flow of trucks built in Zwolle in the Netherlands and bound for the Russian market.
The first shipment took place earlier in June. The units will be processed through the port of Zeebrugge and will be carried on board UECC’s new E-Class vessels (M/V AUTO ECO and M/V AUTO ENERGY) running on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
M/V AUTO ENERGY and M/V AUTO ECO are the first ever built dual fuel LNG PCTCs and they are the largest PCTCs in the world, with Finnish/Swedish ice class 1A Super qualification. These vessels are deployed on UECC’s Baltic Trade and the destination for the SCANIA truck heads and truck chassis will be the port of St. Petersburg in Russia.

This is a milestone for UECC and the company said in a statement: “We are very honoured to be awarded such a contract by a company like SCANIA, focusing on sustainable transportation. It is also very exciting to add SCANIA to our customer portfolio and encouraging that our focus on Greener Sea Transport Solutions, along with our actions and persistence, have delivered this positive outcome.”
