Spanish shipbuilding and ship repair company Zamakona Yards reached a new milestone with the launching of the first of two new 69-meter reefer vessels to be built for the Greenlandic shipowner Royal Arctic Line A/S. Launching will take place February 4.
The vessel will be named as Siuana Arctica and will replace the existing vessel Pajuttaat built in 1979. Conceptual design is being carried out by the Norwegian company Havyard Design & Solutions.
The ship is designed to operate in northwest Greenland and have greater capacity than current ship. The ship will have the flag of Greenland and outfitting works will continue afloat being delivery expected to be by summer 2020.
Zamakona Yards have closely worked with the shipowner and designer to provide the vessel with best performance at sea, maximum cargo capacity and high efficient cargo handling system.
During the construction of this vessel, Zamakona relied on the FORAN CAD/CAM system for the detailed engineering of both the structure and the outfitting. The FORAN software, owned by SENER, can be used to carry out every phase of ship design in a fully integrated manner and with a single database.
Siuana Arctica will be delivered in the summer of 2020.
