Vroon Takes Delivery of MV Girolando Express

Vroon Takes Delivery of MV Girolando Express

On Tuesday 24 June 2014, Vroon took delivery of MV Girolando Express, the fourth of six livestock carriers being constructed at Cosco Guangdong Shipyard.

The remaining two vessels are scheduled for delivery to the company in the second half of 2015.

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 will ensure fuel savings while maintaining high speeds and maximum comfort for cargo and crew.

In a ceremony held at the shipyard in February, the vessel was christened by Ms Marie Janet Blankers, wife of Paul Pistorius, Head Operations Vroon B.V.
