We are very pleased to let you know that we have completed the naming and launching of our new cement vessel M/V Shetland at Ferus Smit BV shipyard in Westerbroek, Netherlands on Thursday 11th of April.

M/V Shetland is a dedicated cement carrier built for JT Cement AS, a joint venture between KGJ Cement, NovaAlgoma Cement Carriers Ltd and Erik Thun AB. She is a sister vessel of Greenland and Ireland, with a LNG fueled propulsion system. The vessel has improved cargo carrying capacity and LNG tank capacity compared to her sister ships, and will be able to receive shore power. Find out more here. 

Mrs. Marianne Eide, spouse of Mr. Jonny Eide, Commercial Vice President KGJ Cement, performed the naming ceremony. After the ceremony, the launching went smoothly and was followed by a nice dinner for the invited guests.
