Spotted: Capesize Newbuild Joins Berge Bulk
Singapore-based dry bulk vessel owner and operator Berge Bulk has taken delivery of Berge Toubkal, a 210,000 dwt Capesize ship.
Constructed at China’s Bohai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry shipyard, the 222,000 cbm vessel was delivered on September 29, 2017.
Berge Bulk has joined its sister vessels, Berge Zugspitze and Berge Grossglockner, which were handed over to the company in March 2016 and January 2017, respectively.
The newbuilding is equipped with a super-long stroke main engine, optimized for low-fuel consumption. Other features include installed exhaust gas boilers for the generators and an upgraded anti-fouling system, according to the company.
Flying the flag of the Isle of Man, Berge Toubkal features a length of 300 meters and a width of 49 meters.
The newest delivery brings Berge Bulk’s fleet to a total of 54 carriers, with an aggregate fleet tonnage of 10.6 million dwt.
