JT Cement orders second cement carrier from Ferus Smit Shipyard

Lidköping-based shipping company Erik Thun has announced that JT Cement, a joint venture controlled together with KGJ Cement and Nova Algoma Cement Carriers, has just ordered a new LNG-fueled cement carrier at the Dutch builder Ferus Smit Shipyard.

Erik Thun says the new vessel will be an improved version of Greenland but with a somewhat larger cargo carrying capacity and increased LNG tank capacity to 200 m3, improving the steaming time on LNG.

The delivery of this further newbuilding is set for July 2019.

The project will be handled by MF Shipping Group with support from KGJS project department and KGJC cargo handling team.
