Groot Ship Design's wins contract for two types of special livestock carrying ships from Malaysian company PBHH (Pembangunan Buka Jijau Holdings Sdn. Bhd)

The contract is for the design and delivery of two types of livestock carriers. Of each type the Korean shipyard, Sundong will build 5 vessels for PBHH/BH Livestock.

Sungdong requested Groot Ship Design to deliver the design for each type because of its knowledge and experience in livestock carriers and its innovating bow design – the Groot Cross-Bow©. For Groot Ship Design this is the biggest design order so far since the company started at the end of 2005.

Groot Ship Design submitted to the Korean shipyard Sundong two concept designs, a design for the transport of 7000 cows (Livestock carrier 7000) and a design for the transport of 11000 cows (Livestock carrier 11000). These designs are to be further completed in the coming months.

The designers will also provide a large part of the basic engineering for the Korean shipyard.

Of each design 5 ships will be built (10 ships in total). Livestock will be shipped in them from Sudan to Malaysia and as return cargo frozen chicken will be carried, each ship will therefore load 100pcs of 40ft reefer containers.

For PBHH this is an important step forward into the world market for live animal transportation with special attention for the welfare of the animals. PBHH is a major player in the production of halal food, and the new fleet of livestock carriers will further strengthen its position in that market.
