Kawasaki Heavy Industries has delivered the 61,143dwt bulk carrier 'Divinegate', to Indigo Marine Shipping S.A. The vessel was built at the Dalian COSCO KHI Ship Engineering (DACKS) yard which operated jointly by KHI and China COSCO Shipping.

The 199m long vessel has a flush deck with a forecastle and five holds that are designed for optimum transport of grains, coal, ores and steel products. Four 30t deck cranes are installed along the centre in between the hatch covers to enable cargo loading and unloading in ports that lack cargo handling facilities.

Hull form has also been optimised with a bow designed to reduce wave resistance. Energy saving is further enhanced with a propulson arrangement based around a MAN B&W 6S50ME-B9.3-TII diesel engine, with a MCR of 8130kW at 108rpm, driving high propulsive efficiency propellers. The Kawasaki rudder bulb system with fins (RBS-F) and semi-duct system with contra fins (SDS-F) also contribute to the vessel’s enhanced propulsion performance.
