The bulk carrier is equipped with electronically controlled MAN B&W 6S60ME-C8.5-TII diesel engine, along with numerous technologies for maximum fuel economy.

It has been designed to transport grains, coal, and the other products for which it has been loaded with a flush deck with a forecastle and seven holds.

For better propulsion performance, the ship features high propulsive efficiency propellers, the Kawasaki rudder bulb system with fins (RBS-F) as well as semi-duct system with contra fins (SDS-F).

NAVIOS AMITIE has also been equipped with several energy saving technologies for minimising emissions and fuel consumption.

With these technologies, the vessel will fulfil the phase two requirements of the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI).

EEDI are obligatory international regulations that are needed for the compliance of energy-efficiency in newly built vessels pertaining to EEDI values.

These values lay down CO2 emissions in grams for carrying one tonne of cargo for one mile (1.6km).

Last month, KHI delivered the bulk carrier Hampton Sky to Batanagar Shipping at shipbuilding company Nantong COSCO KHI Ship Engineering in China.

The vessel, with a 97,762m³ capacity hold, comprises several technologies to achieve maximum fuel economy.
