The construction of the Deltamarin-designed bulk carriers for the Finnish ship owner ESL Shipping has been assigned to the 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, representing the latest in technology and innovation.
As a result of LNG fuel, energy efficiency and highly optimised hull form developed by Deltamarin these bulk carriers will be among the most environmentally-friendly ships to sail in pollution-sensitive areas such as the Baltic. The ships’ emissions will be below all current environmental requirements, and CO2 emissions per cargo tonne transported will be reduced by over 50% in comparison to the present vessel generation. The EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) value will clearly satisfy the IMO reference line requirements, even in Phase 3 due to come into force in 2025.
The ships will start operating in the Baltic Sea during the first half of 2018.
