An ultramax bulk carrier newbuilding ordered by Mitsui OSK Lines will be the world’s “first” vessel to feature two separate wind propulsion technologies.

The 62,900-dwt vessel is under construction at Japan’s Oshima Shipbuilding on the back of long-term employment from US-listed wood pellet producer Enviva.

The vessel, due for delivery in 2024, will feature both Anemoi Marine Technology’s Rotor Sails and MOL’s Wind Challenger hard sail technology.
