The latest C.Delta design can use fuel options including LNG, methanol, ammonia and hydrogen
Deltamarin has introduced its LNG-powered C.Delta series Kielmax container vessel C.Delta2100.
The company explained the new design is based on “extensive research and development work to establish the best-in-class design” in terms of cargo capacity, flexibility and fuel economy, as well as the proven performance of the built Polar Code C.Delta2150 design.
A statement added “It provides a flexible platform for a whole series of designs, which can be adapted to various customers’ requirements as a result of several optional feature studies. The platform design is ’future-proof’, providing the option to use alternative fuels to reduce the carbon footprint or even achieve zero-emissions power production.”
Optional features of the C.Delta series include higher LNG capacity, methanol, ammonia, hydrogen as fuel, a flexible number of reefer plugs, shaft generator PTO/PTI as well as several ice classes.
The choice of the main dimensions (length, breadth, block coefficient in combination with a larger propeller) results in a higher speed respective in less power demand at the design speed/contract point compared with reference designs, Delatmarin notes.
The platform design includes ice class 1A for unlimited Baltic Sea operation. The vessel is equipped with lashing bridges to access reefer containers.
The C.Delta2100 provides a container capacity of 2,100 TEU in four cargo holds and on deck. Deltamarin’s statement said “The increased cargo hold breadth improves stability in the fully laden condition. Furthermore, intake can be optimised to a specific cargo profile and even further improved by considering route-specific loading.”
The flexibility of the C.Delta2100 allows pallet-wide 40-ft container stowage as well as three tiers of high cube containers in the cargo hold without losing container slots. Additionally, a high number of reefer plugs allows smart stowage and the reduction of unnecessary container movements.
Deltamarin said “extensive” effort has been focused on the C.Delta2100 hull form development to ensure low resistance combined with high propulsion efficiency. “This included dozens of CFD calculations and three series of model tests at the Hamburg Ship Model Basin. The performance has been proven in C.Delta2150 sea trials.”
