Feature
SHOYOH signifies a milestone in shipbuilding. Contra-rotating propellers were attached to a bulk carrier for the first time in the world, and a newly developed stern appendage was installed, improving mileage by about 16%. The exhaust gas turbine generator, which uses exhaust gas from the main engine, reduces the necessary amount of fuel for power generation and environmental burdens during voyage. The ballast water tank exclusively for wild weathers alleviates environmental burdens and workloads, improving operability and structural reliability.
