Concept Design developed for ABB

The design delivers excellent fuel economy, a minimised environmental impact and a reduced need for water ballast. It also has excellent slow steaming characteristics together with flexible transit speeds, loading flexibility and increased container capacity for its length, including higher than usual reefer capacity.

The propulsion efficiency is boosted by an electrically driven counter rotating ABB Azipod unit, which is fitted behind the directly driven main propeller. This system gives the vessel state-of-the-art manoeuvrability, provides redundancy and,  ”return-to-port” power and with an advanced electrical system, including an ABB On board DC grid. The vessel will also be highly flexible with regard to transit speed, as the engines will always be running at their optimal load points at any speed from 2 to 21 knots.

The midship position of the deck house allows more containers to be carried on deck than on conventional feeder vessels with the deckhouse aft. This maintains a level of crew comfort, particularly when compared to vessels with the deckhouse forward. The vessel is prepared for a Clean Design Class notation with fuel tanks arranged in a block below the deck house.
