The Singapore-flagged ship, which has a capacity of 76,121 m3, is equipped with four cranes and five cargo holds.

It is designed for loading various cargos like coal, ore, grain, as well as lengthy/heavy cargo such as steel pipe and hot coil.

MES informed that the new form of the bow and stern makes it possible to keep good performance in rough sea conditions as well as calm sea conditions and shows better maneuverability.
