Ferus Smit will launch newbuild general bulk cargo vessel Arklow Brave on Friday, December 12, in Westerbroek.
Arklow Brave is the fifth vessel in a series of six that will be delivered to a client from the city of Arklow, Ireland. The design is a bulk oriented general cargo ship that will be mainly employed in the shipment of wheat, corn and other bulk commodities in European waters.
The vessel’s hull form was chosen to adapt the bulbless principle, creating a slender bow without bulb. Taking into account the various loading drafts and wave conditions to be encountered in service, the total performance of this bow will be better than a bulb optimized for one single draft and flat water only, the builder said.
Arklow Brave has the following characteristics:
Loa = 119.495 mtr
Lpp = 116.895 mtr
B = 14.99 mtr
D = 9.70 mtr
T max = 7.186 mtr
DW max = abt 8660 ton
Hold volume = 350.000 cft
