Second Livestock Carrier Delivered to Vroon

Vroon has taken delivery of the second of four livestock carriers, MV Ganado Express, built at the Cosco Shipyard in Guangdong for Vroon. The remaining two vessels are scheduled for delivery early in 2014.

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 ensures maximum comfort for cargo and crew, and fuel savings, while maintaining high speeds.

In a ceremony held at the Shipyard in July, the vessel was christened by Mrs Mary Lee Trivett, wife of Mr Richard Trivett, Director Austrex Pty Ltd.

Ganado Express will leave the shipyard later this week and will operate for Austrex.
