Launching of Nb. 429 ‘Arklow Clipper’
On Friday the 10th of September at 11.00 hrs. our Nb. 429 ‘Arklow Clipper’ will be launched at the Westerbroek shipyard.
The launching will be executed without ceremony. 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. 429 ‘Arklow Clipper’ is the sixth 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 Clipper has one single hold and an 1A iceclass notation. It is propelled by a 1740 kW MaK engine with a single ducted propeller.
