MES-S Delivers 66,000 DWT Bulk Carrier

MarineLink

Japanese shipbuilder MITSUI E & S SHIPBUILDING CO., LTD. (MES-S) said it has completed and delivered a 66,000 dwt bulk carrier M.V. Kedros at its Tamano Shipyard on June, 14, for KEDROS NAVIGATION SA, Liberia.

The vessel is the 17th ship of the builder's wide beam neo66BC series.

The vessel is equipped with four cranes and has five cargo holds with total capacity for more than 82,800 cubic meters for loading cargoes such as coal, ore, grain, as well as lengthy/heavy cargo like steel pipe and hot coil. The size of hatch opening is the largest for this type of vessel in terms of both length and width, MES-S said.

The ship's main engine, a MITSUI-MAN B&W 7S50ME-B9.3 diesel engine, complies with MARPOL NOx restriction (Tier-II) for exhaust gas emissions, gives superior fuel oil consumption over wide range of output. Fuel oil consumption is less than that of a conventional Supramax bulk carrier, according to the shipbuilder. The ship also has low sulfur fuel oil tanks, which are designed for operation in Emission Control Areas (ECA).

Length overall: 199.99m
Breadth (molded): 36m
Depth (molded): 18.45m
Gross Tonnage: 38,238
Deadweight: 66,614 metric tons
Service Speed: about 14.5 knots
Complement: 24 persons
Classification Society: NK
Flag: Bahamas
