The construction of the Deltamarin-designed bulk carriers for the Finnish ship owner ESL Shipping has been assigned to Sinotrans & CSC main yard, Jinling Shipyard in Nanjing, China. The two extremely energy efficient B.Delta26LNG vessels will be the first LNG-fuelled large bulk carriers in the world.
Project Forward, a joint development project to equip the dry bulk carriers of the future with LNG propulsion, has selected Wärtsilä to join the project with its 31DF dual-fuel engine. The project is led by Athens-based bulk carrier owner Arista Shipping, and other participants are Deltamarin, ABS and GTT.
Deltamarin Ltd has signed a contract to design the world’s first LNG handysize bulk carriers, which will point the way towards greener shipping of commodities. The two B.Delta26LNG vessels will be constructed for the Finnish shipowner ESL Shipping Ltd by the Chinese Qingshan Shipyard.
Deltamarin, Arista Shipping, ABS and Gastransport et Technigaz (GTT) launch a joint development project, Project Forward, in applying LNG as fuel to dry bulk carriers of the future. The concept design will be based on the highly-optimised Deltamarin B.Delta design suitable for ships between 82,000 and 210,000dwt.
Deltamarin’s B.Delta family has scored further success as the Vulica Shipping Co. Ltd ordered the first ever B.Delta68 SUL (Self-Unloading) vessels. The order for the two bulk carriers was placed with the Chinese Jiangsu Hantong Ship Heavy Industry Co. Ltd. The current orderbook of the B.Delta family includes 121 ships.
