Main engine:
MAN B&W 6S50ME- B9.3 – TII MCO 8,130 KW

Speed/Consumption at Sea:
About 14 knots on about 29 mts laden and on about 26.0 Ballast

Ecospeed/Consumption wog
About 13 knots on about 24 mts laden and on about 22 mts Ballast

Vessel burns MGO when manoeuvring in confined waters , for incinerator and for starting d/gens or low d/g load.

Speed consumption figures based on lcv 40,600 kj/kg , summer draft (for laden condition), ekeel, under good weather conditions up to max Beaufort Force 4 and/or Douglas Sea State 3 with wave and/or swell sign height up to 1.25mtrs and no adverse influence of currents/swell.

It is explicitly understood that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no warranty applies to condition exceeding b4 and dss 3, currents , seabuoy to seabuoy on voyages less than 48hrs and 24hrs after cosp/prior eosp excluding canals, narrow/restricted/tidal affected waters and due to reasons of safety, or poor visibility etc., periods when the speed is reduced due to chrtrs' instructions . For the purpose of evaluating vessel's performance under this charter party it is agreed that all days where the weather exceed Beaufort force 4 and/or Douglas sea state 3 (wave/swell sign height up to 1.25mtrs) and adverse influence of currents are expressly excluded from the calculations.-

The speed and consumption so described is on an average basis taken over the entire charter period, including ballast voyages provided no bottom fouling due to immobilisation for 14 or more days in port(s) or anchorage(s) Vessel has the liberty of steaming at slow speed or stop/being idle for the purposes of ballast exchange or ballast/deballast of Hold#3 if required. Cost of ballast treatment if required and any loss of speed / time to be for chrtrs a/c

Consumption in port:
-When idle - abt 2.2mt HFO 380cst + abt 0.5mt mgo –
-When working - abt 5.0mt HFO 380cst + abt 0.5mt mgo (basis 24 hrs working).
-For aux boiler about 1.8 mt of either hfo or mgo as the case may be.

Fuel Quality
Charterers undertake to supply only fuel and diesel/gasoil complying with current ISO specifications at the time of supply. IFO - 380 Centistoke ISO 8217:2010 (E) RMG35 .
MGO - Distillate DMX - ISO 8217:2010 (E) (Sulphur content max 0.1 pct) Same to be free of any-all waste automotive lubricants or other waste chemicals Min FIA/100 20 ECN (IP541) .
Hfo and mgo must be compatible for blending and bunkers purchased/supplied in different lots must be segregated - see also bunker quality clause.
Bunker specifications to conform with any local and/or state and/or international regulations prevailing at any areas, ports and/or places vessel calls/sails.
