Croatia - 3. Maj Shipyard Launches New Tanker Built for Wisby Tankers

At a ceremony held on March 13, a newbuild 716 was launched from the Slipway No. 2.

This is the first of a series of four tankers the shipbuilder 3. Maj has constructed for the Swedish company WISBY TANKERS.

The tanker, designed to carry concrete, oil and chemicals, is 133 meters long and 23 meters wide. The newbuild features the loading capacity of 15,000 dwt and the main propulsion engine built at the shipbuilder’s factory for construction of engines and cranes.

Following the launching ceremony, a keel was laid at the same slipway for a newbuild 718, which accounts for the third tanker of the series.
