Brazilian Joint Venture Delivers Brazilian Venture

Industrias Verolme-Ishibras (IVI) of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil — a recently formed merger of Ishikawajima do Brasil-Estaleiros and Emaq- Verolme, two established Brazilian shipbuilders has several bulk carriers currently on order. One of the first vessels to be completed by the newly-merged company is the 70,000-dwt Panamax bulk carrier MAf Brazilian Venture, now in service in Wah-Kwong. The 738-ft. (225- m) Brazilian Venture has been built to the requirements, and under the survey, of Bureau Veritas (BV). Of conventional all-aft configuration with accommodation for a crew of 26, Brazilian Venture has seven cargo holds. The holds have a hopper profile with upper wing tanks port and starboard, and lower wing tanks port and starboard for water ballast. Double bottom tanks of varying dimensions are provided for water ballast in way of holds No. 1 and 2, and for fuel in the remaining holds. Propulsion is by a Hyundai-Sulzer 6RTA62 direct-coupled diesel engine developing 11,000 hp at 79 rpm, and driving a Stone Manganese five-bladed, fixedpitch propeller with a 24-ft. (7.3-m) diameter.

The vessel's service speed is 14 knots. Electrical power requirements of 450 V, 60 Hz, are met by three 440-kW diesel generator sets each comprising a Daihatsu 6DL-20 diesel engine driving a Nishishiba NTAKL brushless alternator at 900 rpm.
