Container vessels

Container vessels

Deltamarin aims at breaking records with energy-efficient, compact and economical designs for the building of feeder container vessels. Based on the experience gathered from hundreds of concept development projects, Deltamarin develops an optimised design tailored to the specific needs and operational profile of the client.

Designing a container vessel always includes a great set of design targets and constraints. These may be restrictions in main dimensions and special features like ice class and new environmental regulations. At Deltamarin, we have been carrying 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 a specific project.

Deltamarin is an independent design company, which gives us the freedom to select the most suitable components for our designs. Based on the 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 conversions, Deltamarin offers a wide range of services from feasibility studies to complete engineering packages. These projects also often include overall project management.
