Multipurpose vessel Green Kemi completes maiden voyage

COSCO Shipping Specialized Carriers’s multipurpose vessel, Green Kemi, has completed its maiden voyage to Finland.

The vessel, also the largest in the world carrying pulp with an ice classification, sailed into the port of Kemi, the port after which it was named.

The 68,000dwt ice-class multipurpose vessel will be operating between the Nordic and Asian markets for major pulp customers, the company said. The vessel is one of five built by Cosco Shipping Specialized Carriers (CSSC).

The vessel has a length of 226.8m, a beam of 32.26m, and a draft of 19.3m. According to the China Classification Society, the ice classification of the Chinese-built ship is B1, which corresponds to 1A in the Finnish-Swedish ice classification.

Ships of this class have strong hulls and have powerful engines. In most ice conditions, a ship of this class can usually navigate without assistance. This is also the first time that the port of Kemi has hosted such a large vessel.

The ship’s deck is equipped with four single cranes to meet the pulp customer loading requirements and the requirements of customers loading long and overweight equipment.
