M/V Nukumi Named “Vessel of the Year”
Purpose-designed for Windsor Salt, M/V Nukumi is a diesel-electric self-unloading vessel, emphasizing an eco-friendly approach. The ship boasts multiple innovations aimed at minimizing GHGs, air pollutants and its environmental impact as a whole. Notably, the vessel is equipped with diesel-electric tier 3 engines, a ballast water treatment system, a waste heat recovery system and quieter machinery.
In terms of operations, M/V Nukumi features a fully automated single-point loading system coupled with a state-of-the-art cargo handling mechanism. This eliminates vessel shifting during the loading process, paving the way for safer and more streamlined operations. Furthermore, its modern hull design and twin-fin diesel-electric propulsion grant the vessel exceptional maneuverability. This ensures faster transits through narrow channels, even at lower tides.
