Sargam is bulk carrier, built in 2012 in the shipyard of Imabari Shipbuilding according to latest marine engineering standards and innovations. The vessel was constructed according to the latest and most modern technologies and best practices of the Asian Shipbuilding. The ship was requested to be able to carry heavy cargoes, such as ore and coal, but also suitable for light bulk cargoes like grain and bales. The hatch covers of the bulk carrier Sargam are from the side rolling type, driven by automated electric motors and chain drive systems. The hatches are quite large in case to facilitate large cargoes handling. The bulk carrier Sargam has overall length of 234.98 m, while the length between the perpendiculars is 227.00 m. The cargo ship has beam of 38.00 m, depth of 19.90 m and maximum summer draft of 14.45 m. Such measurements are not so exciting in comparison with other vessels, which we already mentioned in our journal, but definitely the well optimized cargo spaces and the modern technology are making this ship really attractive and profitable for the ship-owner Marugame Headquarters. The deadweight of the bulk carrier is 95,671 DWT, while the gross tonnage is 50,624 GRT. The total loading capacity of the cargo ship Sargam is 109,477 cubic meters. the large cargo capacity for such length and beam is really important for the ship-owner, as it decreases the expenses per ton.
The engineering of the cargo ship is also from the new generation, providing low fuel consumption and really improved speed. The main engine is Mitsui-MAN B&W 6S60MC-C (Mark 7) and has total power of 17,400 hp at 101 rpm. Such high power ensures high service speed of the ship, which is 15.2 knots. The maximum speed of the bulk carrier is over 17.0 knots. Such speed is really high for bulk carrier, so the engineering of the shipbuilding company created really high effective and profitable vessel. The ship has edge rudder, which is energy-saving device providing high efficiency of the power, economical and environment-friendly operations.
The bulk carrier Sargam has IMO number 9615195, MMSI 432857000 and call sign 7JLX. The ship is operating under the flag of Japan.
