T.ESRA is capable of cruising for 27 days uninterruptedly. Her cargo area comprises double bottom and sides as ballast tanks, one continuous main deck, four independent cargo tank blocks and two cargo pump rooms. The overall hull structure including cargo tanks were analyzed by FEM tools for safety and weight optimization.

The hull form, optimized with computational fluid dynamics (CFD), is designed for minimum fuel consumption at economic mode with minimum hydrodynamic resistance. The accommodation area is arranged for nineteen crew members.

The tankers have DNV classification.
