Nordana Sea to set sail

November 18 - Nordana Sea - the third vessel in a series of six ships to be delivered to Symphony Shipping and subsequently chartered out to Nordana - will be launched by the Ferus Smit shipyard in Leer, Germany on December 11, 2015.

Nordana Sea is an ecobox-design vessel, which Ferus Smit says is characterised by its flexibility of loading, combined with very economical and ecological performance.

With an overall length of 122.5 m, the 10,500 dwt ship features a large box-shaped hold, as well as a large loading floor area with a moveable tweendeck for project cargoes, and two 85-tonne capacity cranes. 

HLPFI reported in June 2015 that the second vessel, Nordana Star, was being launched in Leer in July 2015; while the first ship - Nordana Sky - was launched in February 2015.

The final three vessels - Nordana Sun, Nordana Spirit and Nordana Space - are scheduled for delivery in July 2016, October 2017 and June 2018 respectively, according to Symphony Shipping.
