Klaveness’ CLEANBU in Wet-Dry Cargo Switch

Norway-based shipowner Klaveness Combination Carriers (KCC) has undertaken a wet-dry cargo switch, marking a first for one of its CLEANBU combination carriers.

The company’s 83,600 dwt Baru, featuring a length of 228.4 meters and a width of 34.5 meters, made the switch from wet to dry cargo.

The vessel transported a full cargo of petroleum products (CPP) from India to Argentina. After discharging the CPP, it completed the cleaning and conversion from tanker mode (as a LR1-tanker) to dry bulk mode (as a Kamsarmax bulk carrier), loaded a grain cargo and is now en route back to Asia.

Klaveness Combination Carriers said that the vessel passed all the strict cleaning inspections from the grain cargo surveyors prior to its loading. The cleaning result was for the first time also available for digital inspection on the Klaveness and DNV-GL Veracity created inspection platform, the company added.

Furthermore, on this specific trade alone the ship’s estimated fuel savings, compared to standard vessels, are at around 1,200 mts, while CO2 emission cuts are at 3700 mts, Klaveness Combination Carriers explained.

The company’s CLEANBU fleet now consists of two vessels with the Barracuda delivered end July and the third vessel Barramundi scheduled to join the fleet in September 2019.
