Icelandic Eimskip and Greenland-based Royal Arctic Line A/S have ordered three energy-efficient container vessels designed by Deltamarin.

The oil-fuelled vessels, with a MAN 7G60ME-C9.5 engine featuring an EGR bypass, will be built at the Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard in China.

Markku Miinala, director of sales and marketing at Finnish-owned Deltamarin, said: “We are very proud of this new contract, which further confirms our expertise in cargo ships. The design is based on Deltamarin’s extensive development work for a new generation of energy-efficient and operationally optimised 1,000-3,000 TEU container vessels intended for feeder service.”

According to Deltamarin, the 2,150teu container vessels will measure 180m by 31m and are designed to have a low impact on the environment.

They will comply with IMO NOx TIER III requirements and, due to the built-in scrubber system, sulphur oxide emissions will be minimised.

The company stated that the vessels will consume less fuel per container unit than existing vessels, ensuring lower operating costs.

Capable of sailing in Arctic waters, they will feature an ice class and comply with the newly adopted IMO Polar Code.

Construction will be carried out over an estimated period of eight months.
