A drone camera captured a bird’s-eye view of the sideways launch of the 495-foot dedicated cement carrier M/V Greenland, which made quite a splash.

Take a look at the wave that washes over the nearby road as sightseers take it all in.

The Oct. 31 launch occurred at the Ferus Smit shipyard in the Netherlands.

The Greenland will be one of the first dry cargo vessels with a liquid natural gas-fueled propulsion system. The unique design incorporates a pressurized LNG tank positioned in the foreship.
