Shortsea traders delivered for Arklow Shipping

Ireland’s Arklow Shipping Ltd has taken delivery of the 5,054dwt Arklow Cadet from the Ferus Smit yard in the Netherlands as the first of ten vessels in a new series of C class ships, all for European trading and each having a single hold capacity of 222,000ft3.

The 2,999gt newbuild, which carries a 1A ice-class notation, is powered by a 1,740kW MaK engine driving a single ducted, controllable pitch propeller through gearing for a service speed of 11 knots and a fuel consumption rate of about 7.5 tons per day.

In October 2016 the second vessel in the series, Arklow Cape, was launched at the builder’s Westerbroek yard in the Netherlands ready for delivery. Jim Shaw
