Siem Super-Eco

A Siem Auto Carriers "Super-Eco" ship arrived today at Autoport. The dual fuel Pure Car and Truck Carrier was built in 2020 by Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry Co and uses LNG to supplement standard marine diesel oil.

With a massive gross of 72,900 tons and a capacity of 7500 RT43 car equivalent units, the Siem Aristotle has a very light 19,090 deadweight tonnes. 

The ship also has a 200 tonne capacity stern ramp and 20 tonne capacity side ramp, so it presumably can also carry RoRo cargo other than cars. Like sister ship Siem Confucius it is dedicated to Volkswagen service. It made its maiden voyage in Janauary of this year.
