  •     The vessel is designed in accordance with IACS Common Structural Rules. As a result, structural safety and operational flexibility are improved.
  •     Suitable arrangement of means of access required by SOLAS enables safe and effective inspection in cargo holds and ballast tanks.
  •     Improvement of safety has been achieved by installation of a forecastle and by application of new requirements concerning reserve buoyancy to the ship.
  •     Main Engine of the ship is MITSUI-MAN B&W Diesel Engine 6S70MC-C, which satisfies IMO Environment Standards for Exhaust Gas and achieves improvement of fuel saving by optimum matching at normal service output. An electronic controlled cylinder oiling system is applied to the main engine achieving operational cost saving.
  •     Ballasting and de-ballasting work can be efficiently made by separation of topside tank and bottom side tank.
  •     Ballast Water Treatment System is installed on board for protection of marine environment.
  •     IMO PSPC(Performance Standard for Protective Coatings) is applied for water ballast tanks to improve the quality and effectiveness of the coatings.
