Last month Royal Wagenborg acquired general cargo ship Vechtdiep as the third out of seven vessels.

Renamed Ziltborg this vessel was given a paint job, providing her with the Wagenborg colours at the dry dock location of shipyard Royal Niestern Sander.

The cargo ship Ziltborg is expected to leave Delfzijl soon.

Equipped with ice class 1A and two box-shaped holds of 39.0 and 42.8 m, general cargo ship Ziltborg is suitable for worldwide trade carrying various cargoes such as forest products and (break-)bulk making m.v. Ziltborg a perfect fit in Wagenborg’s existing fleet of ice-strengthened multipurpose dry cargo vessels.

The general particulars of the vessel are as follows:

Length overall: 118,85 m
Breadth: 15,20 m
Depth: 8,45 m
DWT: 7.300 t
Cargo capacity: 328.949 cft
