Japan-based shipbuilder Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) has delivered a bulk carrier named World Prosper for Astraea Maritime.

With an 82,000 deadweight tonnage (dwt) capacity, the vessel was delivered at Nantong Cosco KHI Ship Engineering (NACKS).

Located in China’s Nantong City, NACKS is jointly run with China COSCO Shipping Corporation.

With an overall length of 228.9m, World Prosper has a moulded breadth of 32.24m, moulded depth of 20.2m and moulded draft of 14.5m.

According to the company, the bulk carrier has been designed to transport grains, coal, and other products. For this purpose, the vessel has been loaded with a flush deck with a forecastle and seven holds.

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

In addition to an electronically controlled main diesel engine, World Prosper features several energy-saving technologies to minimise emissions and fuel consumption.
