MAX MR1 is an important step in our common pursuit to create a new improved generation of our very successful 41,000 DWT Product & Chemical Tanker series of 21 vessels built by SNC during 2005-2013.

Tailored design based specifically on owner intended operating profile with specific focus on:

  • Economical and efficient operation, and
  • Loading flexibility

MAX MR1 is a shallow-drafted to maximize cargo-intake in draft-restricted ports.

Fuel savings have been the primary focus during development of this design and significant testing of the hull lines by both CFD and tank testing at HSVA GmbH in Hamburg have successfully produced a highly competitive design.

SDC GmbH in Hamburg is engaged with the Basic Design which features an optimized hull form to minimize resistance and an optimized propulsion train for greater efficiency.

The MAX MR1 is designed to carry IMO2 and 3 cargoes as well as clean and dirty products and can carry 12% more cargo than traditional vessels with the same draft and beam.

SNC Ship Design is responsible for the concept and has been appointed as Design Authority for coordination of all design actitivities and execution of the 3D model, detail design and production info of MAX MR1 to be built in SNC (Constanta Shipyard).

Aveva Marine is the chosen detail design and production info software to be used.
