The cargo space is divided into seven cargo holds with topside tanks and hopper bottoms. Hydraulic, motor-driven, side-rolling hatch covers are used, and hatch openings are maximized to facilitate cargo handling. The main engine is a low-speed, super long-stroke, two cycle diesel engine, which is combined with a large diameter propeller to achieve efficient operation with low fuel consumption.
