Fincantieri Delivers 135,000-DWT Bulker
To Italian Owner
The 135,000-dwt bulk carrier Ignazio, built by Fincantieri-
CNI, during recent sea trials.
The Marghera yard of Fincantieri-Cantieri
Navali Italiani recently delivered the 135,000- dwt bulk carrier Ignazio to shipowner Fermar
Company, Ferruzzi Group.
The ship will be utilized to transport coal for the Italian thermoelectric power plants of state- owned ENEL Company under a 10-year con- tract.
The Ignazio is 853 feet long, 141 feet wide, with a 75-1/2-foot depth. A fully automated pro- pulsion plant can be directly controlled from the bridge. The main engine is a two-stroke GMT-
Sulzer diesel with a maximum rating of 17,800 hp. She has a service speed of 15 knots.
The Ignazio is also fitted with a Selesmar Vec- tor Integrated Navigation System which pro- vides navigation planning, position fixing, route steering and data monitoring, and with satellite navigation and satellite communications sys- tems.
Fermar's fleet comprises four bulk carriers, four LPG carriers, three tankers and two con- crete carriers.
At present, Fincantieri has another bulk car- rier of 145,000 dwt, that will be delivered next year, and a 90,000-dwt tanker under construc- tion at its shipyards.
