Ferus Smit Splashes MV Reggeborg

Ferus Smit shipyard in Leer (Germany) yesterday, Dec 18th, held a launching ceremony for the ice-classed multipurpose vessel m.v. Reggeborg.

The vessel, with a cargo capacity of 23.000 tons, measuring nearly 170 meters in length and 20,40 meters in width, is the largest vessel Wagenborg ever owned. This is also the largest vessel ever built at Shipyard Ferus Smit.

After m.v. Reestborg, m.v. Reggeborg is the second vessel in a series of three. This series will be completed with m.v. Roerborg. Her launch is expected in September 2014.

The R-series is equipped with a so-called eco bow. In addition to this, these vessels have a relatively low engine capacity so they can be labelled “green”. The R-series is unique in combining cargo capacity, hold dimensions and fuel consumption.

Delivery of m.v. Reggeborg is slated for early 2014.
