Kawasaki Heavy Industries delivers Sabrina Fair bulk carrier

Sabrina Fair has a gross tonnage of 34,515t and can reach an operating speed of almost 14.5 knots.

Japan-based shipbuilder Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) has supplied a bulk carrier, Sabrina Fair, for Hawk Marine Corporation.

With a capacity of 61,000dwt, Sabrina Fair is 199.9m-long, 32.24m-wide and 18.6m-deep. It has a moulded draft of 13m.

The vessel’s gross tonnage is 34,515t and it has a deadweight of 61,215t. Its hold capacity comes to 77,539m³ and it can accommodate 25 crew members.

Sabrina Fair is equipped with one set of MAN B&W 6S50ME-B9.3 diesel engines as its main engine. Its highest operating speed is almost 14.5k.

The vessel has been classified by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and registered in Liberia.

It features a flush deck with a forecastle and five holds to support the transportation of grain, coal, ore and steel products.

The vessel was delivered to Dalian Cosco KHI Ship Engineering (DACKS).

Located in China’s Dalian City, DACKS is jointly run with China Cosco Shipping Corporation.

In a statement, KHI said: “Four 30t deck cranes are installed along the centre in between the hatch covers to enable cargo loading and unloading in ports that lack cargo handling facilities.”

Sabrina Fair is loaded with several technologies to economise fuel as much as possible. These include a bow designed to minimise wave resistance and high propulsive efficiency propellers.

The ship also features the Kawasaki rudder bulb system with fins (RBS-F), as well as a semi-duct system with contra fins (SDS-F).

According to the company, all these solutions will help improve the vessel’s propulsion performance.

In May, KHI delivered a bulk carrier, Navios Amitie, to China’s Nantong Cosco KHI Ship Engineering (NACKS) for Indigo Marine Shipping.

Navios Amitie measures 228.9m in length and has a gross tonnage of 44,175t and a deadweight of 82,002t. Its capacity comes to 81,000dwt and its hold capacity measures 97,745m³.
