Klaveness Combination Carriers ASA takes delivery of the sixth CLEANBU vessel

11 January 2021

On January 11, Klaveness Combination Carriers ASA (“KCC”) took delivery of the MV Baiacu from New Yangzi Shipyard in China.

The MV Baiacu is the sixth of in total eight contracted CLEANBU combination carriers.

The CLEANBUs are unique vessels both in terms of design, their unprecedented environmental performance, operational and technical efficiency.

These vessels have up to 40% lower CO2 emissions per ton mile transported cargo compared to standard vessels, in line with IMO’s 2030 targets for shipping.

The start of trading of MV Baiacu will be delayed due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and quarantine regulations impacting the mobilization of crew. She is scheduled to load her first cargo of clean petroleum products in mid-February.

With the delivery of the MV Baiacu, Klaveness Combination Carriers will operate a fleet of 15 combination carriers.
