Launching of Nb. 442 ‘Arklow Artist’
On Friday the 30th of April, 11.00 hrs, our Nb. 442 will be launched at Westerbroek.

Nb. 442 will be christened as ‘Arklow Artist’. She is the latest vessel in a series of six that will be delivered to our client from the city of Arklow, Ireland. The design is a bulk oriented general cargo ship that will be mainly employed in the shipment of wheat, corn and other bulk commodities in European waters.

The design is a slightly modified version of the first series of 8600 dwt bulkers that Ferus Smit built under the name of Arklow B – series. The design is adapted for iceclass 1A, with modified bow form and propulsion with a propeller nozzle added. At the same time the main engine output was decreased to 2000 kW for better fuel efficiency.

This ship has the following characteristics:
– Loa = 119.495 mtr
– Lpp = 116.895 mtr
– B = 14.99 mtr
– D = 9.70 mtr
– T max = 7.160 mtr
– Hold volume = 350.000 cft

During the launching the yard will NOT be open to the public!

HIGHLIGHTED

On Monday the 1st of March 2021, Our Nb. 451 ‘Thun Equality’ was successfully launched at the Leer yard of Ferus Smit.

A nice movie of one of Symphony’s DP2 vessels using its pipe handling system. As you can see, the ship hardly moves thanks to the DP2 system.

On Friday the 2nd of February 2018, Our Nb. 422 ‘Symphony Space’ was successfully launched at the Leer yard of Ferus Smit. The movie is published in Slow Motion.
