SARC has successfully delivered the on-board loading computer software for the new cargo vessel Arklow Villa (YN 730). This is the last ship in a series of ten 5,150 DWT traders that SARC has fitted out at Royal Bodewes Shipyard to Bureau Veritas class standards. They are all owned by Arklow Shipping and are being operated and managed by Arklow Shipping Netherlands. The first vessel in the series was be delivered in October 2015.
Bodewes & SARC
This is not for the first time that Bodewes has ordered the on-board loading computer at SARC. Other recent projects like the NB 803 Coralius; a unique LNG flex tanker that was nominated for the Next Generation Ship Award at Norshipping 2015 is also equipped with LOCOPIAS. At Bodewes they are using our PIAS software to calculate the stability of their vessels. The advantage of this is that SARC can use their PIAS-files for the base of LOCOPIAS, so there is no extra costs for input of ship data and the same files are used for the stability booklets.
The launch of the Arklow Villa has been filmed and uploaded to YouTube.
