Delivery Nb. 405 ‘M.V. Roerborg’
On Friday, September12th, Shipyard Ferus Smit GmbH., Leer delivered m.v. Roerborg to Royal Wagenborg.
Together with her sisterships Reestborg and Reggeborg, the multi purpose Roerborg – measuring in length nearly 170 meters and in width 20,40 meters – is the largest vessel Wagenborg has ever owned. The Roerborg is the last vessel in a series of three, completed with a so called eco bow. In addition to this, these vessels have a relatively low engine capacity so they can be labeled “green”. With 23,000 tons and only 4,500 kW, this new ship is the most efficient ship worldwide in the 20,000 tons class with ice class. It makes her the world champion on the Energy Efficiency Design Index!
