Klaveness Combination Carriers ASA (“KCC”) took delivery of the MV Balzani from New Yangzi Shipyard in China. The MV Balzani is the eighth and final contracted CLEANBU combination carrier to be delivered to KCC, marking the completion of the CLEANBU newbuilding program. MV Balzani is scheduled to load her first cargo of clean petroleum products in early July.
Like her sister vessels, the MV Balzani has been named after a fish/sea creature, honouring KCC’s commitment to clean oceans and environmentally friendly shipping.
The CLEANBUs are unique vessels both in terms of design and their operational and technical efficiency. These vessels have up to 40% lower CO2 emissions per ton mile transported cargo compared to standard vessels, in line with IMO’s 2030 targets for shipping.
With the delivery of the MV Balzani, KCC will operate a fleet of 17 combination carriers, the world’s most environmentally friendly deep-sea fleet.
