DNV GL presented Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) with Approval in Principle for its Con-Green 2000 feeder design at SMM in Hamburg.

The Con-Green 2000 project brought together partners HMD, MAN Diesel & Turbo, Becker Marine Systems and DNV GL to develop a highly efficient, reliable and economic feeder design.

“With the Con-Green 2000 project we wanted to define the next generation of feeder vessels, with maximum fuel efficiency, high quality, reliability and lower maintenance costs and showcase the capabilities of Hyundai Mipo Dockyard,” said CG Lim, team leader and deputy general manager, ECO Hull Form Development Team at HMD.

The hull design of the vessel is based on the new DNV GL rule set and the new IACS S11A and S34 requirements. The design also incorporates the new Cross Over Rudder (COR) developed by Becker Marine Systems (BMS) and the latest version of the 6S60ME-C10.5 main engine from MAN Diesel & Turbo (MDT).

In preparing the AiP, DNV GL worked with HMD to verify the performance of the design and assess the compliance of the design with environmental requirements, including the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI).

The results of the hull and propeller optimisation were very promising with power savings of approximately 7.5%.

Daily fuel oil consumption has also been improved by 12 to 16% depending on the vessel’s speed.

The attained EEDI of Con-Green 2000 is 15.512. This represents a value 10% lower than similar sized vessels and fulfils the phase 3 requirements of the regulations.

HMD Con-Green 2500 and HMD Con-Green 3000 are currently under construction.
