Amasus orders four MPPs at a Turkish yard
Turkish Bogazici Shipyard has received an order for a series of four MPP shortsea vessels from partners Handelskade and Amasus Shipping.
The yard noted that the contracts were signed for open top diesel electric MPP shortsea cargo ships engineered by Deck Maritime. The vessels, each with an overall length of 89.95 metres and 14 metres beam have been classed by LR.
Each vessel will have a single hold with a total capacity of 178,300 cft and will be capable of carrying windmill blades and constructions in open top condition, as well as containers, bulk cargo and breakbulk cargo.
The vessels are powered by a diesel-electric power system, according to the latest technical standards. Following the modular building principle, this configuration makes the ships ready for the use of future non fossil fuels.
Bogazici Shipyard noted that the vessels are set to sail away from their quay next year.
