Lemissoler Navigation Co. Ltd., the Cyprus-based owner and operator, has selected the MAN Alpha Kappel propeller design for a new series of 8 × 58,500 DWT bulk carriers planned for delivery during 2015 and 2016.

The 6.8-meter, slow-running, four-bladed Kappel fixed-pitch propellers will be tailored to the SDARI-designed bulk carriers and a drivetrain powered by an MAN B&W 5S60ME-C engine, economy-rated at 8,050 kW and 89 r/min. The new Lemissoler vessels will be characterized by trendsetting technology and a green operational profile that deliver an optimized fuel consumption and minimal emissions.

The eight vessels will be built by New Times Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. of the New Century Shipbuilding Group, Jiangsu Province, China. The first four newbuildings will be classified by Germanischer Lloyd (GL) and the remaining ones by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).
