Hitachi Zosen Delivers High-Speed Containership To Highness Maritime

The 43,300-dwt containership Hanjin Longbeach (photo), a highspeed, ultra-rationalized vessel, was completed recently by Hitachi Zosen's Innoshima Works and delivered to Highness Maritime S.A. (Panama).

The new ship has a capacity of 2,358 TEUs with containers stacked three high on deck. She has a bulbous bow to reduce fuel consumption and a stern bulb to reduce vibration.

Main propulsion is provided by a slow-speed Hitachi/Sulzer 7RTA84 diesel engine with an output of 30,100 bhp at 89 rpm. Trial speed was 24.31 knots. Equipment for saving energy and manpower includes a bow thruster, collision-avoidance radar, and automatic navigation devices.

The Longbeach has an overall length of 734.9 feet, beam of 105.6 feet, and depth of 62.3 feet.
