It is designed for the transportation of ultra large and heavy modular cargos.

The vessel will be equipped with a dual engine/prop electric propulsion system, and a highly automated integrated control system.

With an Ice Class 1AS notation, it will be able to sail in the Arctic and other polar regions.

The vessel is scheduled for delivery in the second part of 2015.
