This vessel is a handy-max type bulk carrier of 56,000 dwt with a large cargo hold capacity over 70,000 m3 and marks the 155th ship of its series.

This 56,000 dwt type bulk carrier series of MES is widely called "Mitsui’s 56," and more than 170 units of this series have been ordered from MES.

Features

The vessel is designed in accordance with IACS Common Structural Rules. As a result, structural safety and operational flexibility are improved.

The vessel is designed to have the following same features as “Mitsui 56:” good manageable size of 56,000 dwt at the summer draft, length and draft in consideration for accessibility to world main ports and low fuel oil consumption based on good propulsive performance.

The vessel has five cargo holds and four cranes for handling cargo.

To load various kinds of cargo, the vessel is designed to have enough strength of tank top of cargo holds and to be suitable for efficient cargo handling. The size of hatch opening is the largest for this type of vessel in terms of both length and width. Each cargo hold has a sufficient clear length in order to load long pipes. Cargo hold is well strengthened to load heavy cargo such as hot coil, etc.

Main Engine is MITSUI-MAN B&W Diesel Engine 6S50MC-C8.2, which is a light, compact and high output engine complying with MARPOL NOx restriction for exhaust gas. It has good enough power margin to provide a high degree of flexibility (at normal service output equals 75% maximum continuous output) and the lowest fuel oil consumption shall be realized by the optimum matching at normal service output.

Ballast water can be changed during navigation for protection of marine environment.

Generator engines also comply with MARPOL NOx restriction for exhaust gas.
