This ship is a TESS58 bulk carrier (D/W 57,700 mt type bulk carrier) which we developed to be one of our major products TESS series(Tsuneishi Economical Standard Ship).
The ship has 5 cargo holds, with end folding hatch cover type hatch covers for each. In addition, the ship also has 4 deck cranes which lifting 30mt for each and cargo hold hatchways are built at maximum width to improve the efficiency of loading and unloading. Grain crops, coal, and hot coil can all be loaded onto the ship. High density material such as iron ore can be loaded into alternating cargo holds, such as No.1, No.3, No.5.
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 are introduced.
