Two 22,800 dwt ships of the ECOFLEX design are described. The DIETRICH OLDENDORF and the JOHANNA OLDENDORF, which entered the service of Egon Oldendorff, Lubesk, in 1987, are designed to economically carry general and bulk cargoes and up to 1000 containers. They are regarded by many as equaling or surpassing existing and planned ships of the future. They have attractively low fuel consumption and can carry grain, heavy ore or coal in alternate holds and carry the containers in five holds and on deck. Their length oa is 187.40m and their breadth mld is 178.00 meters. Draft, fully laden, is 9.514m and laden service speed is 16.5 knots. The main engine is 4-cylinder MAN B&W L70MCE unit, probably the most economic 2-stroke long-stroke diesel of its type in the world.
