JT Cement AS parent company, Erik Thun, has announced that a sister vessel of M/V Greenland has been ordered from Ferus Smit Shipyard.

Delivery is due to take place in July 2019.

The project will be handled by MF Shipping Group with support from the KGJS project department and the KGJC cargo handling team. The vessel will be an improved version of Greenland but with a somewhat larger cargo carrying capacity at 8000 dwt.

In addition, the LNG tank capacity will be increased to 200 m3, improving the steaming time on LNG.
