Delivered at the end of March, 'Shinline
11' is the latest in a series of general
cargo vessels built by Malaysian
shipbuilder Shin Yang Shipyard.
Built to Nippon Kaiji Kyokai
classification standards to a design by
Japanese naval architects Far East
Engineering Consultant Co., 'Shinline 11'
displaces 17,957 tonnes fully loaded and
measures in with an overall length of 127.9
metres, a beam of 20.5 metres and a depth
of 14.3 metres.
The single decked design is built
with a bulbous bow forward for
improved seakeeping and hydrodynamic
performance, ahead of a long, parallel
mid-section and plumb stern. Her aft
superstructure rises up over five decks and
contains comfortable accommodation for
the vessel's 23-person crew.
Outfitted with twin cargo holds, she has
a total cargo carrying volume of some
19,250m3 and is equipped with a pair of
IHI Marine Engineering-supplied 30-tonne
capacity double crane units allowing her
to handle cargo efficiently even at
rudimentarily equipped ports.
Her aft engine room contains a single
STX-MAN-B&W 6S35MC-MK7 main engine
that outputs 4,440kW at 173rpm. Driving
through to a four-blade aerofoil type
propeller, the propulsion train provides for
a maximum speed of 15.0 knots and an
economical cruising speed of 13.0 knots.
Alongside the main engine, three
Cummins KTA19-D (M1) auxiliary diesels
are fitted, each outputting 405kW at
1,800rpm to supply the vessel's onboard
The ship's compact wheelhouse is
outfitted for safe and efficient operation at
all times. Separate navigation and
communication areas are provided to the
rear and the control space has been equipped
with a mainly Furuno-based electronics
package supplied by Miri Powerline.
To be operated by Kuching,
Malaysia-based shipping company Shinline,
the vessel will be engaged in general cargo
operations throughout Far Eastern and
South East Asian waters. She is set to be
joined in service soon by two further sister
vessels -- 'Shinline 12' and 'Shinline 15' --
which are currently nearing completion at
the Shin Yang Shipyard.
Shin Yang's shipbuilding division is part
of a larger marine corporation that is also
heavily involved in the provision of
shipping and offshore services. The
company diversified into shipbuilding and
repair in 1999 with an initial focus on the
newbuild and repair of offshore vessels, a
focus that has since broadened to
encompass larger cargo vessels such as
'Shinline 11' and her sisters.
