Dutch shipbuilding company Ferus Smit has launched the second in a series of ten vessels being built for Ireland’s Arklow Shipping, the Arklow Cape.

The vessel was launched at the shipbuilder’s Westerbroek yard.

With a maximized hold volume of 220.000 cft and a carrying capacity of over 5,000 deadweight tons, the Arklow Cape has one single hold and an 1A iceclass notation.

The ship is propelled by a 1740 kW MaK engine with a single ducted propeller.

The Arklow Cape is scheduled for delivery in November this year.

In June 2016, Ferus Smit launched the first of the ten vessels, the Arklow Cadet.
