United European Car Carriers (UECC), owned by Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) and Wallenius Lines, floats the first of three battery-powered vessels, informs UECC in a press release.

The vessels, ordered in 2019, are of the so-called PCTC type, a term that covers Pure Car and Truck Carriers. All three are hybrids between batteries and LNG. The new vessels allow UECC to achieve the IMO's 2030 target to reduce CO2 emissions by 40 percent.
