ABS Classification Society has granted Approval in Principle (AIP) to Deltamarin and GTT for the dual-fuel Newcastlemax bulk carrier design. The companies have been cooperating on the development of the LNG-fuelled energy-efficient vessel which will meet current and future environmental targets by introducing a well-studied, pre-approved and genuinely clean-fuel technology ship.

Deltamarin is strengthening its position as a trusted designer of ro-pax vessels with the latest contract signed with Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC). The contract covers basic and detail design services for Tallink’s new LNG-powered shuttle ferry set to operate between Helsinki in Finland and Tallinn in Estonia.
Deltamarin has signed a contract with Rauma Marine Constructions Oy (RMC) for the design of a LNG-fuelled car passenger ferry for Kvarken Link AB. The commission covers basic and detail design services for all hull and machinery areas.
The Project Forward initiative led by Athens-Based Arista Shipping, with Deltamarin as one of the participants, demonstrates that with LNG as fuel, an advanced hull design and highly efficient propulsion machinery, it will be possible to meet the IMO’s target for a 40 percent reduction in carbon intensity by 2030.
Deltamarin together with Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) has studied the use of membrane-type tanks on cargo and passenger vessels. A unique portfolio of cargo and passenger vessels has been created to save valuable cargo space compared to classic cylindrical-type LNG tank solutions and to enable the use of LNG for long ocean voyages.
2017 has been positively busy for all of us working in the Deltamarin Group companies. At the year-end our new Managing Director would like to share some of his thoughts about what the year brought.
Deltamarin has signed contracts with the Chinese Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry Co., Ltd for engineering and construction support services for the Viking Line LNG-fuelled ro-pax vessel newbuilding. The contracts cover basic and detail design as well as comprehensive project management support and supervision services to the shipyard during vessel construction.
Project Forward, the joint development project based on Deltamarin’s B.Delta design, is in discussions with oil major Shell about potential LNG supply options and requirements for globally-trading bulk carriers, tankers and container vessels.
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.
