Dutch shipbuilder Ferus Smit is preparing to launch the third vessel in a series of six to be delivered to Dutch shipping company Symphony Shipping BV.
The vessel, to bear the name Nordana Sea, will be launched on Friday, December 11, 2015, in Leer, Germany. As her name already reveals, the ship will be chartered out to the Danish company Nordana, and sail in her fleet after delivery.
Nordana Sea is a 10,500 DWT vessel of Ecobox design. It is characterized by its flexibility of loading combined with very economical and ecological performance, large loading floor area for project cargoes, including complete movable tweendeck, two 85 ton cargo cranes and a deckhouse placed on foreship for better protection of deck cargo and enabling to load oversized items over the stern.
Additional features are open top notation; sailing in all weather conditions without maindeck hatches to transport large project cargoes without height restrictions, as well as the Ferus Smit ECO bulbless Canoe type bow, designed to reduce fuel costs and better sustained speed.
