On July the 4th, m.v. Roerborg was launched successfully at Shipyard Ferus Smit GmbH at Leer.
This ice-classed multipurpose 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 and m.v. Reggeborg, m.v. Roerborg is the third and last vessel in a series of three.
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. Roerborg is planned September 2014.
