Tsuneishi Shipbuilding has published details of its new eco ship design that uses Aeroline technology to reduce wind resistance by around 20 per cent and comply with Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) phase 3 requirements.
The 66,200 MT DWT Tess66 Aeroline achieves the largest class of the Ultramax bulk carrier category to maximise transportation efficiency. Furthermore, its versatility ensures that customer convenience is not compromised as it maintains the Panamax breadth along with industry-standard depth. The ship model has reportedly been refined for excellent fuel efficiency under all conditions, from shallow to full load draft.
Kazutaka Seki, manager of ship planning and design said: “We hope this ship model will be a long-lasting favourite for its loading performance, fuel efficiency, environmental performances, and versatility that provide high added value to customers. We will continue to create globally-advanced products and provide ships that combine transportation efficiency with a reduced environmental burden.”
