MES Delivers Bulker to Lepta

Japan’s Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (MES) completed and delivered a 56,000 dwt bulk carrier MV Alam Makmur to a Liberian shipping company Lepta Shipping at its Chiba Works on March 16, 2015.

This is the eighth ship in the shipbuilder’s ”neo56BC” eco-ship series.

At little under 190 meters in length, the vessel has four cranes and five cargo holds designed for storing coal, ore, grain, as well as lengthy/heavy cargo such as steel pipe and hot coil.

The size of hatch openings is the largest for this type of vessel in terms of both length and width.

The vessel is designed in accordance with IACS Common Structural Rules.

The bulker was classed by ClassNK and will sail under the flag of Singapore.
