Container vessels

Container vessels

While some players focus on developing record-large container vessels for long-haul operation, Deltamarin aims at breaking records with energy-efficient, compact and economical designs to build feeder container vessels. Based on the experience gathered over hundreds of concept development projects, Deltamarin has the ability to develop the most optimised design tailored to your specific needs and operational profile.

Designing a container vessel always includes a great set of design targets and constraints. These may include restrictions in main dimensions and special features like ice class and new environmental regulations. At Deltamarin, we have carried out systematic R&D work for years to understand the correct solutions for different design challenges, and our philosophy is always to study the feasibility of available technologies for the specific project.

Deltamarin is an independent design company with no connections to equipment manufacturers, which gives us the freedom to select the most suitable and economically-sound components for our designs. Based on a concept design package developed by Deltamarin, it is easy to get quotes from selected shipyards and to compare the offers.

The first three 2,150 TEU container vessels based on our design of energy-efficient and operationally optimised 1,000-3,000 TEU container vessels were ordered by Eimskip Ltd and Royal Arctic Line A/S in 2017.

For existing container vessels and their conversions, we offer a wide range of services for ship owners and operators. We can help you in feasibility studies for the Emission Control Areas (ECA) operations or fuel saving modifications. Full EPCM packages of scrubbers or ballast water treatment systems can also be delivered.

‘Tukuma Arctica’ & sister vessels

Icelandic Eimskip Ltd and Greenland-based Royal Arctic Line A/S ordered the first three container vessels based on Deltamarin’s energy-efficient and operationally optimised design. The ships are built at the Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard in China, with which Deltamarin (China) Co., Ltd signed a design contract.
