The new contracts further strengthen the position of the B.Delta designs in the market. The B.Delta design’s extremely low fuel consumption has awakened the interest of many ship owners and shipbuilders. Deltamarin will take care of the Basic and Detail design of the vessels as well as Technical Procurement handling and will also have a site team to take the design to production.
The new orders are the first B.Delta37 bulk carriers to be built at Chengxi shipyard and they have been specifically amended to take into account specific requirements of China Navigation.
Tianjin Xingang Shipbuilding Heavy Industries Co. is currently building other B.Delta37 handysize bulk carriers for Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LDA) and M.T.M. Ship Management Pte Ltd. / Strategic Shipping Inc. and additional shipbuilding contracts are expected to be signed within a few months.
The vessels to be built for China Navigation Company shall have the following main particulars:
Deltamarin has focused on fuel efficiency in the designs. The service speed at design draught shall be 14.0 knots and the model tested daily fuel oil consumption at design draft shall be 18 t including 15 % seamargin, ISO conditions. The EEDI shall be 15.4 % less than the requirements to come into force.
A laker bulk carrier utilizing the revolutionary new features Deltamarin has introduced in the B.Delta designs is already sailing and has proved that the extensively tested design features work in full scale as well.
The proven solutions that enable such improvements to existing designs are a combination of hull form, propeller, rudder and main engine solutions applied in a novel way. The latest technologies as well as Deltamarin’s experience in naval architecture have made the revolutionary designs possible.
There are currently ongoing discussions to build B.Delta series vessels in other sizes, such as the B.Delta25, B.Delta64, B.Delta82, B.Delta95, B.Delta210 and B.Delta250. The B.Delta37 series has also been further developed with several alternative arrangements or specifications including box shape holds, open hatch arrangements, ice class, timber deck cargo and others.
The work will be carried out at Deltamarin’s offices in Europe and China and utilizing the partner network. The value of the contractual design work for the Bulk Carriers is approximately 35 man-years.
