Ferus Smit Launches ‘Arklow Bank'

A newbuild general cargo ship named ‘Arklow Bank’ was launched from Ferus Smit Westerbroek yard on November 15th 2013.

The vessel (Nb. 409) is the first unit in a series of six multi-purpose cargo ships ordered by Arklow shipping.

The characteristic and innovative ‘bulbless’ bow shape give this design a number of ‘green’ advantages. Her longer and sharper waterlines create less resistance, irrespective of her loading draft.

At the same time this shape creates more deadweight and cargo volume within her absolute dimensions. Above the waterline the more slender form will cut gradually through waves, improving performance in rough conditions.

Delivery of Arklow Bank will be in January 2014.
