New Mitsui tanker delivery

Japan's Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co. Ltd (MES) has completed a 56,000 dwt type bulk carrier at its Tamano Works and this week it was delivered to New Blossom Maritime S.A., Panama.

The vessel called MV New Beginning is the 151st ship of Mitsui’s 56 Series and has a huge cargo hold capacity over 70,000m3. More than 170 units of this series have been ordered from MES already.

The vessel has five cargo holds and four cranes for handling cargo. In order to load various kinds of cargo, the vessel is designed to have enough strength of tank top of cargo holds and to be suitable for efficient cargo handling.

The main engine is a MITSUI-MAN B&W Diesel Engine 6S50MC-C, which is a light, compact and high output engine complying with MARPOL NOx restriction for exhaust gas. It has good enough power margin to provide a high degree of flexibility (at normal service output = 75% maximum continuous output). The lowest fuel oil consumption is realised by optimum matching at normal service output.

The generator engines also comply with MARPOL NOx restriction for exhaust gas.
