SMT Shipping begins Cymbidium cement shipments
13 February 2018

SMT Shipping, a specialist in cement carriers, self-loading and self-discharging bulkers, and transshipment vessels, has begun operating its new 7800dwt self-discharging bulker named "Cymbidium".

The Cymbidium was delivered by the Royal Bodewes group in early January for trade in the Caribbean region. The ship loaded her first cargo in Aalborg, Denmark, but is destined for deployment serving the construction industry in the Caribbean, under a joint initiative thought to involve the shipowner and a leading Colombian group.

The hull was fabricated in Poland by Partner Stocznia and transferred for final outfitting and completion to prime contractor Royal Bodewes’ Hoogezand yard in the northern Netherlands. Partner Stocznia at Szczecin also played a fundamental role in the Cymbidium new-build project.
