SMT BontrupThe SMT Bontrup (IMO: 7715953, Port of Registry: Nassau, Bahama's) is a belt-unloading bulkcarrier used for stone carrying and dumping. The SMT Bontrup was built in 1987 as the bulk carrier Hoegh Minerva. She was converted to her current form just recently at "VDS Staal en Machinebouw", Holland. The vessel is 200.5 meters long, 30.8 meters wide and has a maximum draught of 11.56 meters. She is powered by a MAN K8SZ 70/125 engine, which gives the vessel a maximum speed of 14.5 knots. The vessel is equipped with two 42 tonnes travelling gantry cranes, two 13 cubic meter clamshell buckets and carries her cargo in 10 holds (strengthened for heavy cargo) with a capacity of 1,764,385 cubic feet. She has a 9 meter outreach on either side.

The SMT Bontrup arrived this morning at the Yanghtzehaven, Rotterdam with a load of stone from Bremanger Quarry, Norway to be used in the Maasvlakte 2 project.
