Dutch shipyard Ferus Smit has announced the delivery of the MV Greenland, a cement carrier that not holds the title as world’s LNG-powered dry cargo ship. 

The Greenland, known around the shipyard as Nb. 423, was handed over to its new owners JT Cement in the weeks leading up to Christmas. After at sea trials and tests, the ship departed Delfzijl, Netherlands on Wednesday on its first commercial voyage to Rostock, Germany where it will receive its first cement cargo.


The MV Greenland is a dedicated cement carrier and the first ever dry cargo ship to be powered by liquified natural gas. The unique design incorporates vertical LNG fuel tanks integrated into the hull in the foreship.


The cement cargo system consists of a fully automated cement loading and unloading system that uses compressed air to move cement through fully enclosed pipes, making loading and unloading dust free.

JT Cement is a joint venture between Erik Thun AB and KG Jebsen Cement from Norway.
