Erik Thun AB orders 8 new vessels at Ferus Smit

We are happy to announce that Erik Thun AB has granted Ferus Smit Shipyards the order for building 8 new vessels. The contracts exist of four multi-purpose dry cargo vessels of 5100 dwt with Ice class 1B and four 7999 dwt coastal tankers which add to the two previously ordered resource efficient ’R-class’ tankers. The vessels will be built at our yard in Westerbroek and will be delivered between 2024 and 2027.

With these new orders, we are able to maintain continuity at our yards during these challenging times. We therefore thank Erik Thun AB for the confidence and look forward to continue our long term relationship in the years to come!

The digitization of our steel processing facility is in full swing. Receiving, collecting, cutting and reporting plates ready by operators according to the schedule of the yard at the push of a button, made deadly simple (by @ferroitbv).

On Friday the 18nd of November, 11.00 hrs, our Nb. 460 was launched in Leer.

Nb. 460 named as ‘Symphony Atlantic’ is the first vessel in a series of two that will be delivered to Symphony Shipping. These vessels are an evolution of the successful ‘Ecobox’ and ‘Ecobox DP’ series that the yard already delivered to Symphony over the recent years.

The new Ecobox XL design has its focus on loading extra long items, such as windmill blades, while at the same time still maintaining her good capabilities as a general cargoship. The modifications in design and systems are also aimed to further enhance her excellent ‘green’ performance with a reduction of her EEDI-score to a new class reference standard.

Therefore the original Ecobox design is lengthened by more than 21 mtr, extending her box shaped hold to more than 100 mtr length on the tanktop, and 112 mtr above the movable tweendeck level. The new ships are 18 mtrs wide, enhancing her cargo deadweight further, and maintaining here flexibility of loading while keeping a very low resistance on both flat water and in waves.

Fuel consumption is further reduced by integrating a novel ORC waste heat generator in the propulsion system. This system further consists of a 3300 kW main engine driving a nozzled controllable pitch propeller running in fully automatic combinator mode. The fuel system will also be suitable for bio blend fuels.

HIGHLIGHTED

Ferus Smit: An impression, a movie is worth a thousand words!

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.
