The christening and launch of the 8,000 deadweight, dual fueled cement carrier M/V Shetland took place at the Ferus Smit yard in Westerbroek.

M.V. Shetland is the third dedicated cement carrier built for JT Cement AS, a joint venture between KGJ Cement, NovaAlgoma Cement Carriers Ltd and Erik Thun AB. Shetland is a sister vessel of the M/V Ireland and M/V Greenland.

The vessel is equipped with an LNG fuelled propulsion system. "This unique design incorporates a 200 m3 pressurised LNG tank positioned in the foreship," it said in a press release.

While sailing on LNG, the vessel will meet the most stringent emission criteria, as well as new norms that might be in place in futures for environmental sensitive areas, the release said.

The cement cargo system will consist of a fully automated cement loading and unloading system, based on fluidization of cement by means of compressed air.
