On Friday, September 28th, Shipyard Ferus Smit B.V., Westerbroek delivered m.v. Vlieborg (yardnumber 407) to Royal Wagenborg. Together with the Vikingbank and next ships in this series the Vlieborg is completed with a newly developed bow. Not only do the sharper lines save on engine power but also result in smoother sailing and maintaining a high speed. Shortly after delivery, m.v. Vlieborg left Delfzijl for Oxelösund to load steelproducts for the Great Lakes.
