Launching of Nb. 427 ‘Arklow Clan’

On Friday the 7th of April at 10.30 hrs. our Nb. 427 ‘Arklow Clan’ will be launched at the Westerbroek shipyard.

The launching will be executed without ceremony, as christening of the ship will be performed in a later stage. Therefore the yard will not be open to the public, however it is of course possible to witness the event from the opposite side of the ‘Winschoterdiep’. Nb. 427 ‘Arklow Clan’ is the fourth in a series of 10 ships to be built of a new design for Arklow Shipping from Ireland.

With a maximized hold volume of 220.000 cft and a carrying capacity over 5000 deadweight tons, it still falls under the 3000 gross tons limit. Arklow Clan has one single hold and an 1A iceclass notation. It is propelled by a 1740 kW MaK engine with a single ducted propeller.

Delivery of Arklow Clan scheduled for May of this year.
