Deltamarin unveils new LNG-ready container vessel
Deltamarin, the ship design, offshore engineering and construction group, revealed the container vessel of its series, the A.Delta2300.
The new vessel provides a flexible platform for a whole series of designs, which can be adapted to various customers’ requirements as a result of several optional feature studies, including LNG readiness, the company informed in a statement.
The development work has been supported by AVIC Weihai Shipyard and has been reviewed and commented on by DNV GL considering the application of the latest rules and industry practices.
The A.Delta2300 provides a container capacity of 2,322 TEU in five cargo holds and on deck.
Extensive effort has been also focused on the A.Delta2300 hull form development to ensure low resistance combined with high propulsion efficiency.
The daily main engine fuel oil consumption is decreased to 42 t/day at a 19-knot service speed resulting in superior fuel efficiency of 0.033 t/TEU/day. A strikingly low deadweight per TEU ratio of less than 16 DWT/14t TEU is thus achieved, which is commonly gained only in larger container ships. This efficiency decreases the EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) value to approximately 37% below the IMO reference line complying with Phase 3, which enters into force in 2025.
