Klaveness receives delivery of 6th energy-efficient CLEANBU vessel
The delivery of MV Baiacu, its sixth CLEANBU vessel, was approved by Klaveness Combination Carriers (KCC), part of Norway's Torvald Klaveness shipping group.
On 11 January, the 83,600 dwt newbuild was delivered to its owner by New Yangzi Shipyard in China.
The MV Baiacu is the sixth of a total of eight CLEANBU combination carriers under contract. Two more units are scheduled for delivery later this year, to be named Balzani and Bass, data given by VesselsValue shows.
CLEANBUs are both full-fledged LR1 product tankers and Kamsarmax clean petroleum (CPP) bulk carriers, CSS heavy liquid cargo as well as all forms of dry bulk goods.
The design, environmental performance as well as operational and technological efficiency of these vessels are advanced.
In particular, as compared to standard vessels, they have up to 40 percent lower CO2 emissions per ton mile of transported cargo, in line with IMO's 2030 shipping goals, according to Klaveness.
As informed, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and quarantine regulations affecting crew mobilization, the start of trading for MV Baiacu will be delayed.
