The Dunkerque-max Capesize bulk carrier Good Horizon is one of the newest and most modern ships, built by the Japanese shipyard Chiba Works. The vessel is the first of next-generation Eco-Ship. The bulk carrier Good Horizon has overall length of 292.00 m, beam of 44.98 m and moulded depth of 24.70 m. The ship achieves deadweight of over 182,000 DWT with Dunkerque-max dimension, through improved transportation efficiency with the adoption of a newly developed highly efficient hull form and adequate cargo holding capacity. The deadweight of the bulk carrier Good Horizon is 182,342 DWT, while the gross tonnage is 94,818 GRT. The new form of bow and stern, highly efficient propellers and energy-saving devices minimize energy consumption.
The Capesize bulk carrier Good Horizon features with reliable and strong engineering and machinery, implementing the most modern marine innovations. The main engine is Mitsui-MAN B&W 6S70ME-C9.5, which has total output power of 37,897 hp at 72 rpm. The main engine complies with the MARPOL NOx restriction (Tier-II) for exhaust gas emissions, and has superior fuel consumption over a wide range of output through optimal engine optimizations. Compliance with facility requirements for transit of the Panama Canal Third Set of Locks enhances the operational flexibility. Compliance with the SOLAS Noise Code contributes to improved crew working and living environments.
Environmental protection of the engineering of the bulk carrier Good Horizon is achieved through measures such as the ballast water treatment system based on the BWM Convention, the double-side skin fuel oil tanks according to the MARPOL regulation on fuel oil tank protection and low sulfur fuel oil tanks to satisfy the strengthened restriction for SOx emission.
The Capesize bulk carrier Good Horizon has IMO number 9767089, MMSI 357293000 and call sign 3EVK9. The vessel is operating under the flag of Panama.
