Ferus Smit launches first LNG-powered cement tanker

Ferus Smit informed that the LNG-powered cement tanker Greenland was christened and launched at the company’s Westerbroek yard at the end of October. 

M.V. Greenland is a cement carrier built for the joint venture JT cement, in which Erik Thun cooperates with KG Jebsen Cement from Norway, the company said in a statement.

According to Ferus Smit, the ship will be the first dry cargo vessel with an LNG fueled propulsion system, in which a pressurised LNG tank is incorporated inside the hull.
