Klaveness Names 2nd Combination Carrier after First Cargo Switch

Klaveness Names 2nd Combination Carrier after First Cargo Switch
Norway-based shipowner Klaveness Combination Carriers (KCC) has named its second CLEANBU vessel after it completed a first switch between dry cargo and a cargo of clean petroleum products (CPP).

“Kanonersky Shipyard floated the Akademik Ageev oceanographic research vessel of project 16450 designed by Severnoe Bureau,” it said.

A source in the shipbuilding industry told Sudostroenie.info publication the event was attended by representatives of the deep-water research department of the Defense Ministry, Pella Shipyard, Malakhit and Severnoe Design Bureaus.

The vessel loaded a cargo of gasoline in India for Singapore after completing discharge of alumina and cleaning the cargo tanks for CPP cargo in the Middle East in October. On this dry-wet round-voyage MV Barracuda effectively reduced the carbon footprint for this transportation work by 32% by replacing less energy efficient dry bulk and tanker vessels.

Named last week at anchorage outside Singapore, the MV Barracuda was delivered in July this year.

As all the other CLEANBU vessels, MV Barracuda was named after a “sea creature” to show the company’s commitment to clean oceans.

According to KCC, CLEANBU vessels produce 30- 40% less GHG emission on the same transport work as standard dry bulk and tanker vessels.

A third unit in the series was delivered in September this year.
