In the closing days of 2023, our 63,000 dwt Supramax from 2018, Ultra Dedication, underwent a remarkable transformation in China. The vessel received a new exterior coat with Hempel silicone coating, and the installation of a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) marked a commitment to efficiency and sustainable shipping upgrades.
The silicone coating ensures substantial fuel savings, surpassing typical antifouling options. Simultaneously, the VFD optimizes pump energy use, curbing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Ultra Dedication stands as a symbol of Ultrabulk’s dedication to efficiency and sustainability. Alongside silicone coating and VFD, she is equipped with LED lights, Ultrasonic Propeller Protection, Trim Optimization, and Autolog sensors, showcasing our commitment to advanced solutions and technologies. The Autolog sensors, in particular, enable precise measurement of emissions savings achieved through these initiatives.
Ultra Dedication is now more than visually enhanced; she embodies our commitment to sustainable shipping upgrades and smarter sailing practices.
