Ferus Smit to launch LNG-powered cement carrier in October

Ferus Smit revealed that the LNG-powered M.V. Greenland will be launched on October 31 at its Westerbroek Yard in the Netherlands.

M.V. Greenland is a dedicated cement carrier built for the joint venture between Erik Thun and KG Jebsen Cement from Norway, JT cement.

According to Ferus Smit, the vessel will be one of the first ever dry cargo vessels with an LNG-fuelled propulsion system. This design incorporates a pressurised LNG tank positioned in the foreship.

M.V. Greenland features a 6-cylinder Wärtsilä 34DF main engine and an enclosed gas valve unit.

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.
