Date:2010/7/07/ 13:22


The fifth capesize bulker in a series of six units from Odense Steel Shipyard is now engaged in sea trials before it will be delivered later this month at Fredericia Shipyard. The bulk carrier, hull no 231, is sailing under the name of Epic and is flying Greek flag for the Nereus Shipping in the Lemos Group of Companies. 
Nereus Shipping is also the owner of the sixth bulk carrier in the series, which will be the very last large newbuilding from a Danish shipyard. Epic is measuring 292 meters over all and has a breadth of 44.98 meters. The draft is 16 meters when fully loaded. The 93,360 GT and 182,060 DWT vessel is powered by a MAN-diesel, type 6S70MC-C, developing 18,660 kW to a service speed of 15.5 knots.
Odense Steel Shipard’s orderbook consists of three ro-ro vessels, one bulk carrier and three frigates for the Danish Navy.
