Hitachi Zosen Maizuru Works has completed the Golden Nerina, a 75,484-dwt bulk carrier, for Golden Door Corporation of Liberia. The Panamanian-registered vessel was delivered on August 5 and is equipped with an energy-efficient Hitachi Zosen-MAN-B&W6S60MC (MK-6) type main diesel engine, as well as the Hitachi Zosen Super Stream Duct (SSD) at its stern.
According to Hitachi, the dwt and cargo capacity of the Golden Nerina is considerably greater than previously built vessels. It is also the fourth bulk carrier in a sequence built with an ABS Safe Hull.
