On Wednesday 18th January 2016 a second asphalt carrier – Palanca Cadiz, constructed by the shipyard 3. MAJ, was delivered to the Swedish company WISBY TANKERS. This tanker was launched in the middle of April 2016.

The shipyard 3. MAJ has previously constructed for the same Swedish company two identical asphalt tankers having a length of 133 m, width of 23 m, of 15000 tonnes deadweight and having the main ship engine built in the 3. MAJ Engines and Cranes Factory in Rijeka. A specific feature of those ships – Hull no.’s 730 (Palanca Rio) and 731 (Palanca Cadiz), is that they have twelve independent cargo tanks designed for the transportation of asphalt, and are able to maintain the cargo temperature at 250°C. Tanks are resting on the ship structure and positioned by vertical supports and structural keys – positioners. Independent tanks have been formed on the slipway out of six big 3D blocks (mounting units) in total, with a mass of up to 300 t each.
