Press Release

Spurred by the IMO strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, Oshima Shipbuilding and classification society DNV GL have signed a long-term strategic cooperation to conduct research and development together on new bulk carrier designs.

The first design to result from the cooperation, the "Oshima Ultramax 2030" leading to a 50% reduction in EEDI, was launched at the Nor-Shipping trade fair in Oslo.

The partners aim to continue the strategic cooperation through to 2030, developing and updating a road map towards the IMO zero emissions scenario, which will be gradually implemented through annual joint industry projects (JIPs), where other partners will be invited to join.

The first delivery resulting from this cooperation was launched at the Nor-Shipping trade fair in Oslo: the "Oshima Ultramax 2030", a new, innovative design which has been developed in cooperation with leading engine manufacturer Wärtsilä. With an EEDI close to 50% lower than comparable vessels, this Ultramax design is one of the most efficient bulk carrier designs to date. It maximizes operational performance while minimizing emissions by utilizing LNG as fuel, an optimized hull shape and a sail to generate extra propulsion. In addition, the design offers ultra-low emissions in port, by using solar panels and a battery to cover the hotel load during waiting times and port operations.
