Klaveness Combination Carriers Takes Delivery of MV Bangus
Oslo-listed Klaveness Combination Carriers (“KCC”) has taken delivery of the MV Bangus carrier from New Yangzi Shipyard in China.
KCC Tuesday said Tuesday the MV Bangus was the fifth of in total eight contracted CLEANBU combination carriers.
"The CLEANBUs are unique vessels both in terms of design, their unprecedented environmental performance, operational and technical efficiency. These vessels have up to 40 lower CO2 emissions per ton mile transported cargo compared to standard vessels, in line with IMO’s 2030 targets for shipping," KCC, whose combination carriers are built for the transportation of both wet and dry bulk cargoes, said.
The start of trading of MV Bangus will be delayed due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and quarantine regulations impacting the mobilization of crew, the company said. The vessel is scheduled to load her first cargo of clean petroleum products in mid-November.
With the delivery of the MV Bangus, Klaveness Combination Carriers will operate a fleet of 14 combination carriers. The company has three CLEANBU combination carriers on order for scheduled delivery in 2021.
