U - Type - M/V ELLA

  • M/V ELLA


Ella is the second U-Type Volgo-Don Max dry cargo ship. The first KAMILLA vessel built on this project was already delivered to the customer and is in operation. The U-Type ships are designed for the sea and inland transport of project, general and bulk cargos. The launch took place on 20 February 2021 in Istanbul. On 1 May 2021, the ship was delivered to the customer.


The features of the project are as follows:
-          The superstructure is located in the bow of the vessel and oversized cargos can be transported on the vessel without limiting the height.
-          The vessel can be converted into a two-deck vessel due to its special construction.
-          There is a deck.
-          The fuel consumption is reduced by 20%. This is made possible by the use of lower power main engines. The fuel consumption is also affected by a doubling of container capacity, increased cargo capacity and improved hydrodynamics.
-          The engine room can be converted to any type of fuel - natural gas, hydrogen or other analogue systems
