Minimal emissions to the sea
Mission in design and construction of new vessels is to minimize shipboard waste and eliminate pumping of dry bulk cargo residues into sensitive arctic and sub-arctic sea areas. As the vessels are geared with a high pressure cargo hold washing system, a tank reserved for dirty wash water will be constructed below main deck. Newbuildings are equipped with hatch coaming heating system. The system prevents cargo to ice up to the sides of a cargo hold above the deck plating and makes the cleaning of the holds easier.
Ballast water treatment system (BWTS) installed onboard is based on mechanical filtration added with UV radiation technology.
Our new LNG-fuelled bulk carriers are first vessels to be built to the new DNV GL class rules. They are built to comply with DNV GL Clean Design class notation. Clean Design is an additional and voluntary class notation of DNV GL. It’s added as a stricter notation compared to Clean notation. In oily bilge water discharge, only 5 ppm oil content is allowed instead of conventional 15 ppm. In addition, stern tube seal is of double barrier type in order to minimize oil spills.
