The new Lady H series is designed for transporting all kinds of cargo with maximum fuel efficiency, especially in moderate to heavy weather conditions, including sailing in ice. Therefore, the vessel features an Ice Class 1A notation and a special designed headbox-tunnel and nozzle, ensuring sufficient thrust and speed.
Due to model tests in ice, the installed power for ice class vessel could be kept at a very low level. Resulting in 1,600 bkW for main engine power. Besides, an additional 400 ekW of PTI propulsion power is available for the most heavy situations encountered.
It features a hold with straight walls for easy cargo intake. The hold length of 67.2m, in combination with the Open Top (hatchcoverless) notation and a tanktop load of 15.0 t/m2, enables the vessel to ship large and heavy project cargo as well.
Compared to the original Lady H vessels, the HFO installation was removed from the design, enabling the vessel to fully sail on MDO/MGO, lowering the greenhouse gas emissions.
