BULKER NEWBUILDING COMPLETED IN JAPAN

BULKER NEWBUILDING COMPLETED IN JAPAN

Tuesday, December 8, 2020 

"K" Line of Japan has taken delivery of 'Cape Ace', a 100,000dwt bulk carrier built at Namura Shipbuilding's Imari Shipyard.

The ship is compliant with the Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carrier (CSR-BC) for bulk cargo ships. She has wide shallow hull shape with six cargo holds which enables loading more cargo compared to a Panamax size vessel. She is equipped with a Namura flow Control Fin on the stern and a Rudder Fin, both of which are products of Namura Shipbuilding, intended to improve propulsion performance by aligning water flow in front and behind the propeller. Together with an electronically controlled engine, these measures are expected to save fuel and reduce environmental impact.

After delivery, Cape Ace will be engaged in iron ore and coal transport for a Japanese steel mill under a long term contract.
