The predecessor of this vessel is “IS” I-STAR(commonly called I-STAR). Its first vessel was completed in September 2010, and fifty-five (55) vessels have already been delivered, gaining top-class share in the world fleet of this category. (*) In addition to plentiful construction record, she has been enjoying very high reputation from domestic and overseas clients on her superb performance under actual navigation.
NEW I-STAR design is based on I-STAR, with increased deadweight by 2,000tons, and decreased fuel consumption by around 12% as a result of reviewing the main propulsion unit and energy saving technologies. The vessel has become more economical and environmental friendly.
