Royal Wagenborg Launches 12th Vessel in Series
Multi-purpose Arubaborg christened at Hudong -Zhonghua. Shipbuilding Royal Wagenborg launched the 12th in a series of multi-purpose vessels late last month when Sofia Svartsjo christened the Arubaborg at Hudong -Zhonghua Shipbuilding in Shanghai. The breakbulk, project and heavy-lift carrier Arubaborg, like the rest of the series, is 17,500 deadweight tons, 1A ice-classed and geared with three 60-ton cranes.
Following the launch, the keel was laid for the Albanyborg, the next vessel in the Royal Wagenborg series. Delivery to the Netherlands-based carrier is expected in June.
