Features

  1. The vessel has a flush deck with a forecastle and seven holds that are designed for optimum transport of grains, coal, products.
  2. The vessel employs various technologies to achieve maximum fuel economy, including an energy-saving, electronically-controlled main diesel engine, high propulsive efficiency propellers, and the Kawasaki rudder bulb system with fins (RBS-F) and semi-duct system with contra fins (SDS-F), which all contribute to the vessel’s enhanced propulsion performance.
  3. The vessel incorporates various energy saving technologies, which reduce both fuel consumption and emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), thereby achieved with the EEDI* Phase 2 requirements.
* EEDI:Energy Efficiency Design Index . Compulsory international regulations requiring energy-efficiency compliance in newly built ships based on EEDI values, which specify CO2 emissions in grams for transporting one ton of cargo for one mile. EEDI regulation values apply in increasingly strict phases based on the construction-contract conclusion date and finished-ship delivery date. By Phase 2, bulk carriers are required to achieve a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions. This regulation is valid from January 2013.
