Nordana Sea now in service

February 29 - Earlier this month, Dutch shipbuilder Ferus Smit delivered the 10,550 dwt multipurpose cargo ship Nordana Sea to fellow shipping company Symphony Shipping.

Under charter to shipping line, Nordana, the ship is the third unit in a series of six newbuilds of Ferus Smit's DP2 Ecobox design.

The ship is 122 m long, 17 m wide and has a single box-shaped hold and a tweendeck that is completely manoeuvrable.

Equipped with two 85-tonne capacity cranes, Nordana Sea features a forward deckhouse, which affords better protection of deck cargo and enables the ship to load oversized items over the stern.

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.

HLPFI understands that the final three vessels - Nordana Sun, Nordana Spirit and Nordana Space - are scheduled for delivery in July 2016, October 2017 and June 2018 respectively.

The photo below shows the ship leaving the river Ems on its maiden voyage in ballast to Esbjerg, where she will pick up large windmill components to be delivered in Greece.
