Sinopacific's Crown63 class Bulk Carrier, JS Amazon, gains BV's first EEDI rating

 

Leading international classification society Bureau Veritas has issued its first EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) certificate to the ultramax geared bulk carrier JS Amazon, the lead ship in a new generation of ‘CROWN63’ vessels developed by China’s  Sinopacific Shipbuilding Group with bulk carrier expert Setaf-Saget.

 

The 63,300 dwt vessel is designed for the carriage of bulk cargoes, including coal, iron ore, grain and cement, as well as a range of dangerous cargoes. Its GHG (Green House Gas) performance when measured in accordance with IMO’s Energy Efficiency Design Index is twenty per cent better than the requirement under MARPOL Annex VI and already reaches the Phase II requirement normally set for the years 2020/2024.  Its deadweight was achieved as a result of an advanced design fully compliant with the Common Structural Rules. The vessel is said to be capable of carrying 5.2 per cent more cargo than other bulk carriers of comparable size.
