DY4001, lead ship of CROWN 63 - 63,500 DWT bulk carrier - successfully completed all sea trial items and began to make her return voyage on February 17. BV to issue its 1st EEDI certificate in Asia.

 
The vessel’s speed trial has been proved to be beyond design prediction and met all the guarantee items specified in contract for delivery. Since DY4001 began sea trial on February 11, Dayang Shipyard’s Marine Dept., Outfit Dept. and Sinopacific Group Design have been implementing integrated plan in close cooperation with SETAF (ship owner) and Bureau Veritas (BV) to push forward the predefined procedures for inspection and delivery.


Compared to CROWN 58 - 58,000 bulk carrier, CROWN 63 increases deadweight by 9% and reduces fuel consumption by 13% at the same service speed. Mr. Jean LABESCAT, Technology General Manager of SETAF was satisfied with the outcomes of the sea trial. “DY4001 features outstanding performance and its design gives consideration to the owner’s operating benefits.” Mr. LABESCAT said. “CROWN 63 is with special advantage in the bulk carrier sector and we are looking forward to the next delivery.”
 

DY4001 will be delivered at the end of this February after which her sister vessels will be in succession. As the key product of Dayang Shipyard of Sinopacific Group, CROWN 63 series are expected to witness their delivery peak and 22 vessels have been planned for delivery in 2012. Based on CROWN 58, CROWN 63 has optimized its body lines and improved the design for bulbous bow, propeller and rudder bulb. This helps accomplish optimal combination in various critical elements and then improve propulsion efficiency. By adopting low-sulphur fuel system, the vessel’s SOx emission has been reduced, which contributes a lot to environmental protection. In addition, on this vessel, interface and space are reserved for the retrofit of ballast water treatment system, if any.

 
CROWN 63 adopts low-speed two-stroke electronic injection diesel engine from Doosan Engine. Its electronic injection system provides higher precision in fuel injection, features sufficient combustion and long working time, which turns out to be efficient in reducing the fuel consumption as well as NOx emission.
 

Given the contribution CROWN 63 makes to carbon emission reduction, BV issued Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for the lead ship of CROWN 63, which is also BV’s first EEDI certificate in Asia. Meanwhile, the Green Passport certificate will be issued for this vessel (DY4001) by BV as well.
