Sanoyas Hishino Meisho Corp. has completed the Panamax bulk carrier, Orange Tiara, which was ordered by Handbell Shipping and delivered to Esmeralda Lines, at the Mizushima works and shipyard. The carrier is the 12th Sanoyas 75,000 DWT type Panamax bulker with the maximum beam permitted to pass through the Panama Canal. 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.
