We are pleased to announce that earlier today the keel-laying ceremony for Gudali Express took place at COSCO Guangdong Shipyard, P.R. China. The vessel is the seventh and last in a series of livestock carriers to be built at the Shipyard for Vroon.
Four of these newbuilding livestock carriers are already trading successfully, with a fifth vessel, Gloucester Express, scheduled for delivery later this year. The final two vessels, Greyman Express and Gudali Express, will join the Livestock Express 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.
