Japanese shipbuilder Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding Co has won orders for three Post Panamax bulkers pertaining to its new ‘neo 87BC’ eco ship design.
The company behind the order has not been revealed nor the price details of the contract.
Mitsui said that its 87,000 dwt neo series vessels comply with IACS Harmonized Common Structural Rules (H-CSR).
Other environmentally-friendly features of the design include an electronic control type main engine which is compliant with the IMO NOx Tier III Regulation.
