Friday, October 25, 2019 

Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding has delivered Hull 1947, a 66,508 dwt bulk carrier, the 'Tomaros' from its Tamano Shipyard to Tomaros Navigation of Liberia.

This is the 20th ship in the yard's neo66BC series. Principal particulars are 199.99m loa, 36m breadth and 18.45m depth. The ships is powered by a MITSUI-MAN B&W 7S50ME-B9.3 main engine, compliant with IMO Tier II NOx regulations. It is equipped with tanks for low sulphur fuel oil, permitting operation in ECAs. With a service speed of 14.5 knots, fuel oil consumption is said to be lower than that of a conventional Supramax bulk carrier despite its enlargement.

The wide beam (over Panamax) and shallow draught offer flexibility in operation and high efficiency. The hull form enables good performance in rough sea conditions as well as calm and shows better manoeuvrability. The size of hatch opening is the largest for this type of vessel in terms of both length and width.
