Kawasaki Shipbuilding Corporation in Japan has delivered the Feg Success bulk carrier to Cape 4 International S.A. at its Sakaide shipyard.

The newbuilding, Kawasaki hull No. 1632, is the second unit of the 180,000 dwt bulk carrier design developed by Kawasaki Shipbuilding.

The 182, 619 dwt Feg Success boasts one of the largest cargo capacities among vessels that can enter the French port of Dunkirk. The 292m long, 45m wide bulk carrier is fully compliant with the new bulk carrier hull strength rules (IACS Common Structural Rules) for enhanced safety.

The vessel is powered by an 18,660kW MAN 6S70MC-C Mk 7 Kawasaki built two-stroke diesel engine driving an 8m diameter Nakashima five-bladed fixed pitch propeller for a service speed of 15.3 knots. To achieve maximum fuel economy, the newbuilding is fitted with a Kawasaki semi-duct system with contra fins and a rudder bulb with fins.

Auxiliary power is supplied by means of three 630kW Daihatsu 6DK-20 diesel gensets. The new bulker has double-hull fuel oil tanks and electrical deck machinery to prevent marine pollution. Another feature is the anti-corrosion coatings that comply with the new performance standards regarding protective coatings (PSPC) for ballast tanks to ensure the highest paint quality.
