Hitachi Zosen receives its 50 th order for a Panamax Bulk Carrier.
Hitachi Zosen's Panamax-type bulk carriers have been impressing the shipping industry ever since the first one was developed in 1968. And for years they have been receiving praise for their performance and economical advantages. In fact, today the U.S. MARAD Report rates the Panamax- type as the most efficient design for dry bulk carriers passing through the Panama Canal.
Recently, Hitachi Zosen received its 50th order for a Panamax-type ship, a 62,900 ton deadweight bulk carrier with a grain cargo holding capacity of approximately 2,640,000 cubic feet (exclus. top side tank).
This well balanced, fuel-saving ship is powered by a Hitachi-Sulzer 6RND76-M type diesel engine, and it measures 215.0 meters (length), 32.2 meters (breadth), 17.8 meters (depth) and 12.9 meters (draft).
With Hitachi Zosen you get more than sound shipbuilding. You get the experience of economic efficiency that has made
Hitachi Zosen's Panamax bulk carriers the most profitable choice afloat.
