TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING Co., Ltd. holds Naming & launching ceremony approximately every two months at the Tsuneishi Factory.

The ship launched this time is an 81,600MT bulk carrier of 183 meters in length.
Tsuneishi Shipbuilding was one of the first in the industry to increase the deadweight of PANAMAX bulkers, the largest type of bulker that is able to navigate the Panama Canal, from the previous 70,000 tons to over 80,000 tons (as much as 82,000 tons class). This type of vessel boosts transport efficiency. The name “KAMSARMAX bulker” comes the fact that it meets the 229-meter ship length restriction for entry to the Port of Kamsar, a major bauxite shipping port in the Republic of Guinea.
The ship has 7 cargo holds, with side-rolling type hatch covers for each. In addition, cargo hold hatchways are built at maximum width to improve the efficiency of loading and unloading. Grain crops, coal, and iron ore can all be loaded onto the ship. In addition, to reduce the fuel consumption, the energy-saving device, MT-FAST is installed at stern, and the engine with electronic control system is also adopted. In order to be more environment friendly, the fuel tank with double-hull, the ballast water management system, and the main engine certified NOx Emission Standards with Tier 3 are introduced.

The launching ceremony takes about 20 minutes. We hope that you will take this opportunity to watch the excitement of the launch of our ships, which are built by bringing together the best of the shipbuilding technologies that Japan has to offer.
