- The vessel has a flush deck with a forecastle and five holds that are designed for optimized transport of grain, coal, ore, steel, wood pulp, lumber and other such materials and products. It can also carry lumber on its hatch covers.
- The vessel type falls midway between a standard bulk carrier and an open hatch type bulk carrier. All of its holds have double-hull structures with large hatch openings and are box-shaped for efficient handling of wood pulp and other such products.
- Four 36-ton deck cranes are installed along the centerline in between hatch covers to enable cargo loading and unloading in ports that lack cargo handling facilities.
- The vessel employs various technologies including a fuel-saving, electronically-controlled main diesel engine; bow and propeller designs offering high propulsion efficiency; and the Kawasaki rudder bulb system with fins (RBS-F) and semi-duct system with contra fins (SDS-F) for the propeller section. All of these contribute to reduced fuel consumption.
- The main engine and generator engine comply with Tier II NOx emission standards set by the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships.
