We built our Eco Ultramax vessels at 4 yards in Japan and China. They feature economical engines and fuel saving devices like the Mewis duct and rudder bulb. All vessels are fitted with 4 x 30/35 tons cranes and grabs, A-60 bulkheads, Co2 in holds and increased tanktop strength.
The Becker Mewis Duct and the propeller boss cap fin are power-saving devices providing fuel savings and reduced greenhouse gasses. The Mewis Duct enhances the flow of water to the propeller to increase thrust. The boss cap fin is a small propeller fitted just behind the main propeller. It breaks up the hub vortex generated behind the rotating propeller. The combination of these two “eco” features produces a fuel savings of 6 – 10% and a substantial reduction in CO2 emissions.
Fitted with a Wärtsilä low-speed-rt-flex50-D main engine, these vessels have high fuel-efficiency and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
The ME-B engine is MAN Diesel & Turbo’s most modern, two-stroke design whose ‘.2’ suffix indicates a new, fuel-optimised version that complies with IMO Tier-II emissions legislation.
