At the Brodosplit shipyard in the Dalmatian city of Split, a new Handy bulk carrier was launched. Local Split shipping company Jadroplov won the contract to build the ship, Hull 470, which was designed to transport bulk cargo.
The bulk carrier's dimensions are identical to those of the 2010 ship "Sveti Dujmo" which prominent Australian magazine "Baird Maritime: Ships & Shipping" awarded the title of bulk carrier of the year and included it in the list of top 20 ships in 2011.
The length of the bulk carrier is 189.90 metres, with a width of 32.24 metres and 17.10 metres height. The load capacity is 51,900 tons and its main engine weighs 211 tons, which will be powered by engines of 7,500 kW(kilowatts), allowing it to reach speeds of 14.50 knots.
