Deltamarin to design new PCTCs for Chinese yard
Deltamarin of Finland has been contracted by Chinese Tianjin Xingang Shipbuilding Heavy Industry and Swedish shipowner Wallenius Lines to carry out approval and detail design work for two (plus two options) Post Panamax car carriers.
Deltamarin and Tianjin Xingagng shipyard had previously collaborated on the outline and contract design for the owner, which enabled the yard, which has previously focused on building mainstream vessel types, such as bulk carriers, to secure this more sophisticated newbuilding order.
The two Wallenius ships will be ro-ro PCTC ships for the transportation of rolling cargoes such as cars, trucks and other vehicles. Capacity will be equivalent to 8,000 cars, with length of 200m and beam 36.5m. The vessels are designed for improved efficiency to ensure low environmental impact, with hulls optimised for low fuel consumption, good sea keeping and worldwide operational capabilities.
The design work will be carried out mainly at Deltamarin’s European offices, with detail design assistance from Chinese partner CSIC group. The total value of Deltamarin’s 12-month contract is around €3.5 million.
The Tianjin Xingang yard is currently building 10 bulk carriers to Deltamarin’s B.Delta37 design; four for French owner Louis Dreyfus Armateurs and six vessels the US-based MT Maritime Management Group.
