Shipyard Tsuneishi Heavy Industries Cebu Inc. based in Cebu, Philippines with head office in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan has launched its first TESS58 AEROLINE. The premium class vessel is a D/W 57,500 MT type Bulk Carrier equipped with state-of-the-art AEROLINE technology that reduces wind resistance.
The wind resistance reduction technology, AEROLINE, combines the cut-corner design for the accommodation corner in previous models with a newly developed streamlined shape for the fore upper bow, for a 10% reduction in wind resistance. The fore upper bow has been rounded, giving the ship a stylish streamlined design.
The vessel is powered by Generator Engine Waste Heat Recovery Unit-2, TOP-GR-3 propellers for lower vibration and higher propulsion efficiency, and FAIS-4 which boosts the engine’s fuel efficiency through direct intake of cool outside air.
TESS58 AEROLINE is 190 meters long. It has a service speed of 14.5 knots.
