The MV Green Kemi, a multipurpose vessel operated by COSCO Shipping Specialized Carriers, has completed its first voyage to Finland, arriving at the port of Kemi, after which it is named. This vessel is noteworthy for being the world’s largest pulp-carrying ship with an ice classification. It has a deadweight of 68,000 tons and is intended to serve the Nordic and Asian markets, primarily catering to major pulp customers.

The MV Green Kemi, one of five built by COSCO Shipping Specialized Carriers (CSSC), measures 226.8 meters in length, 32.26 meters in width, and has a draft of 19.3 meters. Its ice classification, as per the China Classification Society, is B1, equivalent to 1A under the Finnish-Swedish ice classification, indicating a strong hull and high engine power for navigating most ice conditions independently. The vessel’s arrival marks the first time the port of Kemi has accommodated a ship of this size.

Designed to meet specific cargo requirements, the MV Green Kemi is equipped with four single cranes, facilitating the loading of pulp and other long, overweight equipment.
