Kawasaki Heavy Industries delivered the two bulk carriers

Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced that it delivered the two bulk carriers with a capacity of 61,000 DWT named BELTRADER (Kawasaki hull No. 8070, DACKS hull No. DE096) and BELGUARDIAN (Kawasaki hull No. 8071, DACKS hull No. DE097) for LEPTA SHIPPING CO., LTD. at the Dalian COSCO KHI Ship Engineering Co., Ltd. (DACKS), which is located in Dalian City, China and operated jointly with China COSCO Shipping Corporation Limited (China COSCO Shipping).

The vessels have a flush deck with a forecastle and five holds that are designed for optimum transport of grains, coal, ores and steel products. Four 30-ton deck cranes are installed along the center in between the hatch covers to enable cargo loading and unloading in ports that lack cargo handling facilities.

The vessels employ various technologies to achieve maximum fuel economy, including an energy-saving, electronically-controlled main diesel engine, a bow designed to reduce wave resistance, high propulsive efficiency propellers, and the Kawasaki rudder bulb system with fins (RBS-F) and semi-duct system with contra fins (SDS-F), which all contribute to the vessel’s enhanced propulsion performance.
