Deltamarin, New Ferry Design Contracts

Sunday, February 07, 2010

Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd and Société des Traversiers du Québec have both ordered new passenger ferry designs from Deltamarin. Both companies named sustainable design and excellent energy efficiency as important criteria in the designs.

The order of the Scottish Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL) comprises the concept design of two small RoPax ferries (311.6 ft & 114.8 ft). The designs will be used as tendering specifications to shipyards. CMAL are intending to commence a fleet replacement program in the near future, and these ferries will be a part of it. The ferries will operate around the Scottish mainland and islands. Two of our partners also participate in the project: Safety at Sea Ltd in simulations, manoeuvring and seakeeping, and SeaTec Ltd in port interface, risk management and environmental management.

The other contract was signed with the Canadian Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ) for professional services in Naval Architecture and Engineering for the Matane - Baie-Comeau - Godbout new ferry. The work includes concept design for tendering purposes as well as supervision of the works during the construction, trials and commissioning of the ship. The work is to be performed by the consortium of the Canadian Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering company Navtech Inc. and Deltamarin.

Both concepts are to be developed in accordance with the principles of sustainable development. The fuel consumption and hence CO2 emissions are to be minimized and the latest technologies are to be implemented on all ship systems, so that the impact of the vessel on its environment could be minimized. Deltamarin has an excellent track record of developing efficient designs taking into account the entire lifecycle of the vessel and they maintain that sustainable design is cost efficient as well.
