• A: Gantry cranes

    40 and 70mt cranes rolling on tracks across the length of the cargo handling area. The outreach is 8-9m out from ship’s side, which is optimal for for both break-bulk and bulk cargoes.

     

  • B: Grab suitable

    With box-shaped holds and no overhang the cranes are well suited for discharging bulk cargo with grabs.

  • C: Rain covers

    The cranes are fitted with retractable roofs, which cover the whole working area including the outreach area which enables operation in unfavorable weather. Some vessels are also equipped with curtains on the sides that enable work possibilities in even the most adverse weather conditions.

  • D: Independent dehumidification systems

    The vessels are equipped with an advanced de-humidification system that enables the crew to control the climate inside each independent cargo hold, an important feature when handling humidity sensitive cargoes. 

  • E: Open hatch holds

    With hatchcovers the same size as the holds, it means you have full and direct access to all parts of the cargo holds with the cranes.

  • F: Weather routing systems

    Saga Welco is using professional weather forecast services as well as advanced on board systems to optimize the vessels routes across the oceans. This will enable us to save fuel as well as avoiding delays and damage to cargo.

  • G: ISO certification

    All Saga Welco  vessels are ISM certified and have ISO 14001 certification which means they have the required systems for environmental management on board.

  • H: Green Vessels

    Saga Welco follows all recommendations and programs that protect the environment both locally and globally. Some of these programs are speed reduction in Los Angeles and Long Beach (Green Flag), ESI (Environmental Ship Index)

  • I: Ballast Water Treatment System

    Most vessels are fitted with an approved Ballast Water Treatment System according to the IMO Ballast Water Management Convention. The treatment system will ensure that no biological organisms are carried in the Ballast Water that may infect waters with unwanted species.

  • J: Optimal deck cargo suitability

    Weather decks have sockets for container Twist Locks and the hatch covers, being the full length and width of the hold, provide a large flat surface which is optimal for a wide variety of  project cargoes.

  • K: Hull Design

    Optimized hull design resulting in reliability and fuel efficiency in all weather conditions.

  • L: Removable tween decks

    Some of the Saga Welco vessels are equipped with removable tween decks. These pontoons can be used in holds where the cargo has a tier limitation or the cargo is un-stackable, resulting in better utilization of the cargo space.

  • M: Anti-fouling

    The owners use High-Technology anti-fouling that is free from harmful substances and is approved according to the IMO Anti-fouling Convention. This technology ensures a smooth, fuel efficient and environmentally safe surface.

  • N: Propeller polishing

    The propellers are cleaned and polished on a 6 monthly interval to ensure optimal performance at all times.
