We are pleased to report the launching of LSC ‘Greyman Express’ took place at COSCO Guangdong Shipyard, P.R. China. ‘Greyman Express’ is the sixth newbuilding livestock carrier to be built for Vroon at this Shipyard.
Four newbuilding livestock carriers have already been delivered to the company and are trading successfully. The fifth vessel, ‘Gloucester Express’, will be delivered later this year, with the final two vessels – ‘Greyman Express’ and ‘Gudali Express’ – joining the fleet in 2016.
These revolutionary livestock carriers carry the ‘Groot Cross-Bow’ and are “next‑generation” livestock vessels, boasting a cargo capacity of approximately 4,500 sqm and a cruising range of around 18,000 NM. They are fitted with animal-welfare facilities exceeding Australian (AMSA) regulations and incorporate a Groot Cross-Bow that will ensure fuel savings while maintaining high speeds and maximum comfort for cargo and crew.
