Germany-based shipyard Ferus Smit has launched a new multi-purpose cargo ship, MV Reggeborg for Wagenborg shipping in Delfzijl, Netherlands.

Built as yard number 404, the vessel is second in a series of three cargo ships to be delivered to Wagenborg shipping and they will be the largest to be operated by them.

The vessels have an overall length of 169.75m and breadth of 20.40m, a deadweight of 23,300t and holding volume of 945,000ft³.

The vessel also features a ducted propeller, propelled by a 4,500kW engine.

The ship creates less resistance despite heavy loads because of its ‘bulbless’ bow shape and longer, sharper waterlines. The design also provides for more deadweight and cargo volume for the vessel.

The slender form above the waterline aids the ship through rough waters, while the negative stemprofile helps it to navigate through ice sheets.

Unlike other ships in the series, the MV Reggeborg is equipped with a higher deckhouse to create better vision lines during high-project deck cargoes.

MV Reggeborg is scheduled for delivery in the end of February 2014.
