News & Innovations

A future proof Cement Carrier for the next generation.

CemCoaster and CemClipper,measures L:98m,W:15.6m,4650t at 6 m draft. Equipped with an MaK M/E,allowing a future conversion into dual fuel operation. The ships will then be optionally run on LNG or MDO. Both options comply with requisite emission rules.The design of the bulkhandling system is optimised on max. flexibility in loading/unloading options for all possible terminal requirements. With loading capacity of 500t/h and unloading capacity of 250t/h this system is ideally suited to the needs of Baltrader’s customers. Apart from operational and safety aspects, all decisions are geared towards low fuel consumption, in particular the design of hull lines and propulsion. Considerable effort was made to optimize combination of main components such as rudder propeller and nozzle in order to trade ships safely and efficiently in sea conditions typical for Northern Europe. All preparations for later installation of LNG system have been considered to ensure swift change to a dual fuel vessel
