Medi Matsuura is modern and high-efficient bulk carrier, built by Tsuneishi Shipbuilding at their Tsuneishi Factory in August 2015. The vessel has most modern engineering and marine equipment for environmental operations. The KAMSARMAX bulk carrier has deadweight of 81,600 DWT, developed by the shipbuilder in 2004. The first vessel was delivered in 2005 at the Tsuneishi Factory. The Medi Matsuura is the 217th ship of the KAMSARMAX series. Tsuneishi was one of the first shipbuilders to increase the deadweight of Panamax bulk carriers from the previous 70,000 DWT to over 80,000 DWT (up to 82,000 DWT), which are permitted to navigate the Panama Canal and at the same time to enter Kamasar Port, a major bauxite shipping port in Guinea. Tsuneishi named this type of Panamax bulker as KAMSARMAX, which is known for its greatly improved transport efficiency.
