Monday, April 28, 2008

However, they have been designed in such a way that they could be switched to break bulk or bulk operations if required.

Further flexibility is provided by two 45 tonne Liebherr shipboard cranes, making the ships fully self sustained. An MAN B&W main engine, developing 11,060 kW at 127rpm, provides sufficient power for a 19 knot service speed at 90% micron.
