 China’s COSCO Guangdong Shipyard today launched Greyman Express, the sixth newbuilding livestock carrier to be constructed for Dutch company Vroon at this yard. 

 
Four newbuilding livestock carriers have already been delivered to Vroon and have entered service. 
 
The fifth vessel, Gloucester Express, will be delivered later this year, with the final two vessels - Greyman Express and Gudali Express – joining the fleet in 2016.
 
These revolutionary livestock carriers are “next‑generation” livestock vessels, boasting a cargo capacity of approximately 4,500 sqm and a cruising range of around 18,000 NM. 
 
They are fitted with animal-welfare facilities exceeding Australian (AMSA) regulations and incorporate a revolutionary bow design that will ensure fuel savings while maintaining high speeds and maximum comfort for cargo and crew.
