All her sister’s vessels are fitted with energy-saving devices like Mewis ducts together with very efficient engines that are tuned for the operational profile of the trade. Furthermore, the highest grade of anti-fouling paint is applied to avoid hull growth over the next 5 years. These measures are put in place to lower the emission and save fuel. They were also fitted with a Scrubber during New Building stage which reduces emissions considerably; not only Sulphur to comply with the IMO 2020 Sulphur cap, but also particulate matter and black soot.
