Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding has received orders to build three low fuel consumption Post Panamax bulk carriers and delivery is expected in the second half of 2020.

The shipbuilder has developed a new series of 87,000 dwt Post Panamax bulk carriers, which complies with IACS Harmonized Common Structural Rules (H-CSR), it said in a statement last week.

The main engine is the latest electronic control type which complies with the regulation on nitrogen oxide (NOx) contained in ship's exhaust gas (IMO NOx Tier III Regulation).

In addition to the use of low sulphur fuel oil in order to comply with the regulation on sulphur oxide (SOx) contained in ship's exhaust gas, SOx scrubber can be selected as an optional solution.

Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding has built 2,000 vessels including bulk carriers, LNG carriers, large crude oil tankers, naval ships, training ships and as well as diesel engines for ships, port cranes, rotators and other industrial machinery, according to its website.
