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.
Becker Mewis Duct
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.
Man-B&W 6S50 ME-B9
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.
Electronic fuel injection control Fuel economy High power reliability Longer time between overhauls Low propeller speed Better vessel manoeuvrability Very low life-cycle costs Tier II emissions compliance
Man-B&W 5S60 Engine
Fully integrated electronic control Low SFOC Superior performance parameters Appropriate fuel injection pressure and rate shaping at any load Improved emission characteristics Smokeless operation at any load Lower NOx on command
