She is built to a German-developed design combining optimised capacity with a multi-engine diesel-electric powering system.

The ship’s electrical package was supplied by ABB, with power delivery from four MAN gensets driven by medium-speed engines. The plant incorporates selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to ensure IMO Tier III compliance on NOx emissions

Sister vessel BraveWind was delivered in September this year (picture below) and the company has options for two additional vessels of this class.
