Colombo Dockyard (CDPLC) is set to start the construction of six Eco Bulk Carriers for Norwegian company Misje Eco Bulk.

The contract also includes four optional Eco Bulk Carriers.

Initially signed in March, the contract is expected to become effective next month after receiving the owner’s final board approval.

The 89.95m-long vessels will be able to accommodate the cargo capacity of 5,000 deadweight tonnage (dwt).

The vessels will be powered by a four-stroke engine and will be able to carry bulk cargo, grain, timber, unit loads and containers.

The eco-friendly vessels will emit lower emissions than the traditional bulk carriers.

Wartsila Ship Design Norway provided the concept and the basic design of the bulk carriers while Colombo Dockyard is responsible for the detailed designing.
