Posted by Irina Tabakina

The 208,000 DWT Bulk Carrier Linda Oldendorff built at Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (HHI) was delivered to Oldendorff in Germany on September 30, 2014. It is the first in a series of six.
The vessel has flush deck with forecastle, bulbous bow, transom stern, single rudder (full-spade) and single screw propeller directly driven by a slow speed diesel engine. It measures 300 x 50 x 25m, with a 16-m draft.
The vessel has nine cargo holds and was constructed as single hull with hopper sided double bottom and topside wing. No.6 cargo hold may be used as water ballast tank for ballast voyage under heavy weather. The vessel is powered by a Hyundai-B&W 6G70ME-C9.2 main engine with an NCR output of 12,300kW at 66.6 rpm/min, enabling her to sail at a service speed of 14 knots. 
The main engine is optimized with low load tuning by exhaust gas by-pass system for turbocharger for improvement of fuel consumption at practical operation condition.
Daily fuel oil consumption at the normal continuous rating of main engine is 46.4 metric tons based on marine diesel oil of 42,700 kJ/kg in lower calorific value at shop test. MEWIS duct as an energy saving device is installed at the stern.
