TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING Co., Ltd. (HQ: Fukuyama, Hiroshima, Japan) will provide a live video of a ship launching ceremony, which is held every few months.
The ceremony is scheduled for April 5th, 2017 at 16:00 (JST) on USTREAM channel:
※Launch time is subject to change. Please see the details below.
This ship utilizes the latest AEROLINE technology to reduce wind resistance, which combines a cut-corner (reduced front area) design for accommodation of a tower configuration with a streamlined shape for the upper bow. It is equipped with FAIS (Fresh Air Intake System), which directly intakes cool air from outside to increase the engine’s fuel efficiency.
The ship has five cargo holds with end-folding hatch covers. Cargo hold hatchways are built at maximum width to improve loading and unloading efficiency. Grain, coal, and steel coils can all be transported. High-density materials like iron ore can be loaded into alternating cargo holds(No. 1, No. 3 and No. 5). This bulk carrier is also equipped with a G/E exhaust gas heat recovery unit and ballast water management system, which are environmentally friendly.
We hope that you can spare about 15 minutes to watch the exciting launch of this ship, which represents the best shipbuilding technologies that Japan has to offer.
