DELTAMARIN DESIGNS SUSTAINABLE GREAT LAKES SELF-UNLOADING BULKER

Tuesday, April 6, 2021 

Deltamarin and Canada Steamship Lines (CSL), a unit of the CSL Group, have entered into a contract to build a new efficient, highly sustainable, self-unloading ship based on a Deltamarin bulk carrier design.

Deltamarin has developed the vessel concept in close co-operation with CSL. The customised 26,000dwt vessel will be designed to operate in a safe, sustainable and efficient way along the eastern seaboard of Newfoundland and the Great Lakes region. It will feature several innovations to enhance efficiency and safety. A diesel-electric, tier III engine configuration has been selected and a specialised hull design will contribute to cutting CO2 emissions and improving energy efficiency. Quieter machinery will reduce vessel noise to protect the area’s North Atlantic whales and other marine mammals. The hull design in combination with the propulsion system be developed for optimum manoeuvrability and increased safety in shallow waters.

Vesa Hamarila, Senior Advisor, Deltamarin, said: “We are honoured again to have an opportunity to work together with our long-term client CSL Group to develop this pioneering ship, introducing a new level of performance, safety and environmental sustainability.”

The concept design work has been carried out at Deltamarin’s Finnish offices, while the basic and detail design work for the shipyard is being undertaken at Deltamarin’s Shanghai office.
