COSCO Guangdong Shipyard has delivered a livestock carrier, the ‘Greyman Express’, to Dutch shipping company, Vroon.

The vessel has been designed with a cargo capacity of approximately 4,600 square metres, which translates to around 4,000 head of cattle, and is the sixth in a series of seven new livestock carriers.

The ‘Greyman’ has a cruising range of about 18,000 nautical miles and can maintain a service speed of 16.75 knots in heavy weather.

The seventh and final vessel in the series, ‘Gudali Express’, is expected to be delivered by Guangdong Shipyard later in 2016.
