On 6 September 2023, Singapore’s Winning International Group (WIG), in collaboration with China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) officially signed a contract for the building of two cutting-edge 325,000 DWT ore carriers.
he two WinningMax vessels signed to build this time represent a new generation of ships that WIG has envisioned by itself in partnership with CSDC, a design company under CSSC Beihai Shipbuilding Company.
These vessels are tailored to meet the demands of sustainable shipping and the specific needs of bauxite maritime trade, ensuring a seamless logistics chain from West Africa to China. They have received technical support and recognition from both the China Classification Society and Det Norske Veritas.
With an impressive overall length of 329.99 meters, a breadth of 60 meters, a depth of 30.50 meters, a structural draught of 22 meters, and a speed of 13.9 knots, these vessels comply with the stringent requirements of PhaseⅢ of the Ship Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI).
Compared to Baltic Capesize vessels, the WinningMax carrier is projected to reduce energy consumption by nearly 50% per nautical mile per deadweight. Furthermore, these vessels are designed for future-ready green operation, equipped with 12,000 cubic meters of methanol fuel storage tanks, paving the way for zero-carbon voyages using green methanol.
The signing of WinningMax carriers today is in line with Singapore’s vision to go green in the shipping and maritime industry. We hope to see more shipping and maritime collaborations initiated in Singapore to contribute to the world’s trade, investment and sustainable development.”
