Japanese shipbuilder and ship designer Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (MES) has delivered a 60,000 dwt bulk carrier to its owner at Tamano Works on October 25.
MV Venezia was handed over to Greece-based Eastern Mediterranean Maritime Limited.
Venezia is the 26th ship in the shipbuilding company’s “neo60BC” series and the third Eco-Ship in its “neo series”.
Featuring a length of 199.9 meters and a width of 32.25 meters, the Malta-flag bulker has four cranes and five cargo holds.
The 34,094 gross ton vessel is designed for loading various cargoes like coal, ore, grain, as well as lengthy/heavy cargo such as steel pipe and hot coil, MES said.
Venezia’s main engine, MITSUI-MAN B&WDiesel Engine, complies with MARPOL NOx restriction for exhaust gas emissions.
Considering strengthened restriction for SOx, the Supramax ship has low sulfur fuel oil tanks, which are designed for operation in Emission Control Areas (ECAs).
