Ship management and maritime service provider Columbia Shipmanagement has taken delivery of newbuilding vessels M/T Atrotos and M/T Anikitos, two 50,000 dwt, eco-friendly chemical/product MR tankers, says an article published on Offshore-energy.

Wind-assist equipment

They are two out of six sister vessels delivered to CSM in 2023, with eco-friendly design, liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel ready, assigned with wind-assisted ready and HVSC-ready notations by ABS.

The HVSC-ready notation is for the ships equipped with high voltage shore connection systems to be installed in the future, and the wind-assist ready notation refers to vessels equipped with wind-assist equipment to be installed on board.

Future-proof design

Furthermore, the MR tankers are equipped with IHM notation for safe recycling.

Both vessels have future-proof design compliant with EEDI Phase 3 and are annotated with ABS SUSTAIN-1 (2020) that demonstrates adherence to the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), according to the company.

High-speed internet connectivity

To remind, CSM recently revealed it is conducting a trial of the new Starlink satellite internet service on a number of vessels.

The Starlink service, provided by a constellation of low-earth orbit (LEO) satellites operated by SpaceX, is designed to deliver high-speed internet connectivity to ships and vessels across all sectors of the maritime industry.
