State-of-the-Art Livestock Carrier, 'Ganado Express' Delivered

Vroon has taken delivery of MV Ganado Express, the second of four livestock carriers being constructed at the Cosco Shipyard in Guangdong.

The remaining two vessels are scheduled for delivery to the company early in 2014.

These livestock carriers are “next‑generation” livestock vessels, boasting a cargo capacity of approximately 4,500 sqm and a cruising range of around 18,000 NM.

They are fitted with animal-welfare facilities exceeding Australian (AMSA) regulations and incorporate a revolutionary bow design that ensures maximum comfort for cargo and crew, and fuel savings, while maintaining high speeds.

Ganado Express will leave the shipyard later this week and will operate for Austrex.
