 LNG-powered M.V. Greenland, a dedicated cement carrier, will be launched on October 31 at Ferus Smit Westerbroek Yard in the Netherlands.

 
The vessel will be one of the first ever dry cargo vessels with an LNG fuelled propulsion system. This unique design incorporates a pressurised LNG tank positioned in the foreship.
 
M.V. Greenland is a dedicated cement carrier build for the joint venture JT cement, in which Erik Thun AB  cooperates with KG Jebsen Cement from Norway.
 
While sailing on LNG, the vessel will meet the most stringent emission criteria, as well as new norms that might be in place in futures for environmental sensitive areas. 
 
The cement cargo system will consist of a fully automated cement loading and unloading system, based on fluidization of cement by means of compressed air.
