Havyard to design cargo ship pair for Royal Arctic Line
Havyard Design and Solutions will design a further two cargo vessels in a series for Royal Arctic Line.
The vessels will be built at Nodosa Shipyard in Pontevedra, Spain.
Upon entering service, the vessels will be used to transport food supplies and other essential items to small villages without road connections.
The vessels will operate in northwest Greenland, which is known for its rough climate and small, shallow-draught ports.
The first cargo ship is scheduled to be delivered at the end of 2020 while the second vessel will follow four months later.
Each vessel will have a length of 37.6 metres, a width of 10 metres, and two cargo holds with different temperature zones, from -25 to 10 degrees Celsius. Total cargo capacity will be five containers or 60 pallets.
