Deck Cargo Barge for SE Asian Routes

Wednesday, June 22, 2005
The Hangzhou Dongfeng Shipbuilding yard is busy with multiple projects in their yard. In addition to a series of patrol vessels they are building a number of coastal ships and barges. Established in 1978 the yard covers an area of 70,000 square meters and is fronted by 400 meters of deep-water pier face.

Facilities and equipment includes a 140 by 38-meter slipway, a 100-ton crane, plasma numerical controlled cutting machine, submerged arc automatic welding machinery, 160 ton hydraulic pressure and a 20-inch pipe bending machine in addition to plate bending machines. The yard can build vessels up to 20,000 DWT.

The shipyard has built a wide range of vessels to class from container and bulk cargo ships to tugs and hovercraft. A particularly interesting vessel currently under construction is a large 82 by 20-meter equipment carrier. Designed by the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Ship and Ocean Engineering Design Institute ( to carry newly manufactured cargo and container handling equipment for ports on the large open deck between Shanghai and Singapore. The hull will also contain a complex of ballasting tanks to port and starboard with fuel oil tanks down the centerline. Propulsion for the vessel will be a pair of Cummins KTA38 M1 engines rated for 746 Kw or 1000 HP continuous duty.

The engines are turning into Reintjes WAF562 marine gears with 5.947:1 ratios. A pair of Cummins C-series powered 130 kW generator set will provide the ship’s electrical power.

The engine room is located aft under a large open deck with the accommodations for up to 14 people and navigation house forward. Please see the attached general arrangements. I also have available on by request photos of the vessel under construction and a shot of Cummins rep Simon Leng with Hangzhou Dongfeng Shipbuilding’s design specialist Zhau Zhou Yan.
