MES Delivers Bulk Carrier SBI Apollo

Japanese Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (MES) has completed and delivered the Supramax bulk carrier SBI Apollo to NYSE-listed dry bulk owner and operator Scorpio Bulkers.

The 60,000 dwt vessel, ordered in December 2013, is the shipbuilder’s 16th Eco-Ship of neo60BC design.

With a length of 200 meters and a width of 32.3 meters, the bulker was delivered at Mitsui’s Chiba Works on October 4, 2016.

Featuring four cranes and five cargo holds, the vessel is designed for loading various cargoes like coal, ore, grain, as well as lengthy/heavy cargo such as steel pipe and hot coil.

SBI Apollo’s main engine, MITSUI-MAN B&W Diesel Engine 6S50ME-B9.3, complies with MARPOL NOx restriction (Tier-II) for exhaust gas emissions.

Considering strengthened restriction for SOx, the ship has low sulfur fuel oil tanks, which are designed for operation in ECA (Emission Control Areas), according to MES.
