Norway-based cement company JT Cement AS has ordered a pneumatic cement carrier from Dutch Ferus Smit shipyard, Erik Thun said.

As informed, the newbuild will be a sister vessel of M/V Greenland and is scheduled for delivery in July 2019.

“The vessel will be an improved version of Greenland but with a somewhat larger cargo carrying capacity at 8.000 dwt. In addition, we will increase the LNG tank capacity to 200 m3, improving the steaming time on LNG,” according to Erik Thun.

The project will be handled by MF Shipping Group with support from KGJS project department and KGJC cargo handling team.

JT Cement AS, which owns a fleet of seven smaller specialized pneumatic cement carriers, recently got another owner. NovaAlgoma Cement Carriers acquired a 25% ownership interest in the company, joining KGJ Cement Holdings and Erik Thun AB.
