MOL to Acquire High-efficiency Cape-size Bulker Based on Advanced ISHIN-III Technologies
 

Tokyo, Dec 30, 2011 (JCN) - TOKYO-Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd (MOL) has ordered a new cape-size bulker that will adopt element technologies of the next-generation ISHIN-III vessel program to achieve high fuel efficiency. Universal Shipbuilding Corp. will construct the new ship, which is slated for completion in late 2014.

MOL has repeatedly studied various technologies to realize the concept for the ISHIN-III series of next-generation vessels (large-scale iron ore carriers) announced in April 2010.

The new vessel will adopt the following element technologies which are at the core of the ISHIN-III concept:
- A steam turbine that generates electric power using exhaust heat from the engine.
- A hybrid power generation system to convert rotational force from the supercharger into electric power.
- In addition, the electric power gained through the steam turbine and hybrid systems will assist vessel propulsion.

The new technologies will boost the fuel efficiency of the new ship by more than 20% compared to conventional cape-size vessels, with a corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions.
