Ferus prepares for Arklow launch

Ferus Smit will launch the newbuild vessel Arklow Accord at its yard in Westerbroek, the Netherlands on November 22. 


The vessel is the second in a series of six that will be delivered to Ireland’s Arklow Shipping. The first – Arklow Abbey – was launched at the yard in August, as HLPFI reported here

Like its sister ship, Arklow Accord will largely operate in European waters, transporting wheat, corn and other bulk commodities, said Ferus Smit.

The design is a slightly modified version of the Arklow B series of 8,600 dwt bulkers that Ferus Smit previously delivered for the company. The new design is adapted to ice-class 1A standards and has an overall length of 119.5 m.

Final delivery of Arklow Accord is scheduled for January 2020.
