Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (MES) completed and delivered a 66,000 dwt type bulk carrier M.V. Clipper Excelsior (MES Hull No. 1859) at its Tamano Works on March 25, 2014 to Clio Marine Inc., Liberia. This is the third ship of MES’ wide beam shallow draft vessel called neo66BC, the new generation ship of the builder’s neo series lineup.

The ship is designed to have enough deadweight for more than 66,000 metric tons and capacity for more than 82,800 cubic meters for loading various cargos like coal, ore and grain, as well as lengthy/heavy cargo such as steel pipe and hot coil. The vessel has five cargo holds and four cranes for handling cargo and keeps the superior usability of Mitsui 56, the builder said. The size of hatch opening is the largest for this type of vessel in terms of both length and width.

According to MES, fuel oil consumption is less than that of a conventional Supramax bulk carrier despite its enlargement. Main Engine, MITSUI-MAN B&W Diesel Engine 7S50ME-B9.3, complying with MARPOL NOx restriction (Tier-II) for exhaust gas emissions, gives superior fuel oil consumption over wide range of output. Considering strengthened restriction for SOx, the ship has low sulfur fuel oil tanks, which are designed for operation in ECA (Emission Control Areas).

The vessel is designed in accordance with IACS Common Structural Rules. Additionally, as a result of research work of interviews with ship owners and operators, investigations on ports all over the world and present trade patterns, wide beam (over-P’max) and shallow draft make it possible to have wide flexibility for operations and high transport efficiency. The new hull form makes it possible to keep good performance in rough sea conditions as well as calm sea conditions and shows better maneuverability.
