On Monday, April 8th, Shipyard Ferus Smit B.V., Westerbroek delivered m.v. Volgaborg (yardnumber 408) to Royal Wagenborg. Together with the Vikingbank and Vlieborg the Volgaborg 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. Volgaborg set sail for Porsgrunn to load ore products for the Great Lakes.
