Japanese public multinational corporation Kawasaki Heavy Industries (HKI)announced that it delivered the bulk carrier Divinegate for Indigo Marine Shipping at the Dalian COSCO KHI Ship Engineering Co., Ltd. (DACKS).
According to a release, the bulk carrier has a capacity of 61,000 DWT and 199.90 meter length. Its gross tonnage is 34,508. Its main engine is one set of MAN B&W 6S50ME-B9.3-TII diesel engine with maximum continuous output: 8,130 kW at 108 rpm.

The vessel has a flush deck with a forecastle and five holds that are designed for optimum transport of grains, coal, ores and steel products. Four 30-ton deck cranes are installed along the center in between the hatch covers to enable cargo loading and unloading in ports that lack cargo handling facilities.
Divinegate employs various technologies to achieve maximum fuel economy, including an energy-saving, electronically-controlled main diesel engine, a bow designed to reduce wave resistance, high propulsive efficiency propellers, and the Kawasaki rudder bulb system with fins (RBS-F) and semi-duct system with contra fins (SDS-F), which all contribute to the vessel’s enhanced propulsion performance.
It incorporates various energy saving technologies, which reduce both fuel consumption and emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), thereby complying with the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) Phase 2 requirements.
