Major shipbuilder Royal Bodewes builds vessels in the 1,500–12,500dwt range. As well as dry cargo vessels, tankers and customized ships, it also manufactures ‘special’ vessels including hybrids, offshore
vessels, ro/ro and lo/ro and cement carriers.
The company is currently building three self-discharging cement carriers at two locations in Holland. The pictures show the first of these carriers.
The capacity of all three vessels will be 4.200dwt, and a major incentive is low fuel consumption during sea voyages.
The plan is to deliver all three ships this year.
