This vessel is the group’s 4th TESS58 AEROLINE. The TESS58 AEROLINE is a premium class vessel featuring the higher fuel efficiency design of the TESS58, part of the TESS (Tsuneishi Economical Standard Ship) product line. AEROLINE is a new technology for reducing wind resistance, which combines the cut-corner design for the accommodation corner in previous models with a newly developed streamlined shape for the fore upper bow, for a 10% reduction in wind resistance. The fore upper bow has been rounded, giving the ship a stylish streamlined design.
Fuel efficiency is further improved not only by the low-resistance hull design but also by the incorporation of proprietary energy-savings technologies and an electronically controlled engine.
