Oshima to use composites in new cargo carrier

Japan’s Oshima Shipbuilding cooperated with DNV GL, on a joint development project for a new 65,000dwt open-hatch general cargo carrier concept. The 210m ship will have a 77,000m3 and 65,000 tonnes deadweight capacity, with a 13.1m draught due to its wider breadth. Composite uses similar raw materials to those found in the hatch covers of the ECO-Ship 2020.
