The new vessel is equipped with a scrubber that is compliant with the Inter- national Maritime Organization’s (IMO) more stringent SOx emission regulation, which is scheduled to become effective in January 2020. The ship will be about 23% more energy ef? cient (reducing
CO2 emissions per unit of transport), exceeding the IMO EEDI phase 2 re- quirements that will become effective in 2020. In addition, a highly corrosion re- sistance steel has been used in the cargo tank, making anti-rust paint unnecessary.
