New cargo vessel Scot Carrier launched

On Friday 14 September the new cargo vessel Scot Carrier was launched at Royal Bodewes Ship Yard in Groningen, Holland.

She is the first of two sistersships to be launched with Royal Bodewes and will be the largest ship in the Scotline fleet with a DWAT of 4800mt.

She has been built to comply with all the latest legislation including provisions to be ready for the ballast water treatment system.

Scot Carrier will have a length of 89.98 metres, a beam of 15.20 metres, a maximum sailing draft of 5.68 metres and cubics of 235,000 cbf (6650 cbm).

She will be powered by a MaK engine, will be sailing under the British Flag like the rest of the Scotline fleet and classed under Lloyd’s Register. Scot Carrier is expected to be fully operational and delivered in November 2018.

Scot Carrier is the most recent acquisition to Scotline’s fleet of nine owned vessels and five  ships on long-term time charter.

Scotline are always looking for opportunities to enhance our fleet, to better serve our customers with the most reliable service.

Scot Carrier will have a hold depth of just under 9 metres in height as well as being container fitted and ice class 1B which is important for our Baltic customers.

 

Scotline runs a modern fleet of coasters serving Northern Europe with regular routes between Sweden, Ireland, Denmark, Germany, Norway, the Baltic States, the Netherlands, France and the UK. Our cargoes vary from forest products and bulk cargoes to project cargoes and many others. With fully owned terminals in Rochester and Inverness and an exclusively-operated fleet of modern ships we can offer our customers an all-in-one service of shipping, stockholding and distribution, tailored specifically to their needs. Scotline also fixes market cargos for our vessels through our network of contacts worldwide.
