Nb. 458 ‘Arklow Guard’ successfully launched

On Friday the 12th of April at 13.30 hrs. our Nb. 458 ‘Arklow Guard’ was launched at the Westerbroek shipyard.

Nb. 458 ‘Arklow Guard’ is the last in a series of 5 ships built 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 Guard has one single hold and is propelled by a 1600 kW MaK engine with a single ducted propeller.
