Mamaroneck, New York (PRWEB) December 02, 2016
Derecktor Shipyards of Mamaroneck, New York and Harbor Harvest of East Norwalk, CT. proudly announce their next revolutionary project providing an alternative transportation platform for organic food shipping. Combining the quality construction that Derecktor’s reputation is built on, along with their successful application of a cutting edge BAE HybriDrive® propulsion system utilizing Cummins QSB6.7’s, the vessel is based on a 19m aluminum Catamaran platform designed for efficient operation in coastal waters. This Catamaran Organic Market delivery vessel will be Derecktor’s third Hybrid Series vessel. The future series of vessels has been reconfigured to carry 9,000 pounds of protected refrigerated cargo and 3,000 pounds of deck cargo. For approximately 3 voyage hours without recharge, the Organic Market Delivery Vessel can travel emission free on its Lithium battery component. In an attempt to reduce carbon footprint, Derecktor has teamed up with Harbor Harvest to create an eco-friendly marine coastal network that will integrate a retail space along with the support of the organic farm market in the Connecticut/Long Island Gold Coast and Long Island Sound area. The trade routes have already been tested to confirm the fuel efficiency and battery life, and the vessel will be able to be charged at shore side facilities along its route. Trade routes have been determined based on farm locations and will support a wide range of coastal area. This forward-thinking project will work to move freight back onto the water, decongesting roadways and providing one of the most environmentally sustainable farm to market systems that is in operation today.
