The ship has a 400 metric tons lifting capacity, 11,500-cbm bale, box-shaped holds, and 16.5 knot service speed. The Ocean Atlas was designed for the movement of project/heavy-lift and military cargoes such as heat exchangers, turbines, generators, locomotives, refinery equipment and the like.

The photo was taken on the Gatun Locks northbound in the Panama Canal.
