B. Delta Carrier

Deltamarin announced that so far a total of 103 B.Deltas and derivates have been ordered by several world-known shipowners at nine Chinese shipyards. The latest addition is the order of eight open hatch B.Delta37 bulk carriers by Polish shipowner, Polska Zegluga Morska P.P. (Polsteam), at Yangfan Group shipyard.

The main dimensions of Polsteam’s B.Delta37 are 179.99 m in overall length and 30.0 m in beam, with cargo carrying capacity of 50,000 m3. With a service speed of 14.0 knots, at design draft the model tested daily fuel oil consumption is expected to be 17.6 mt including 15 % sea margin, ISO conditions. EEDI is calculated to fulfil the 2020 Phase II requirement, i.e. more than 20 % below the baseline.

The total contract value of Deltamarin’s work with Yangfan Group, to be carried out over an estimated period of six months, is around €1 million.

For the time being, Yangfan Group is building a total of 21 B.Delta37 vessels, two for Tunisian owner Transbulk, eleven for Italian d’Amico, and the latest eight for Polsteam.

B.Delta Series
Deltamarin said its B.Delta37 has attracted significant attention in the industry due to its best- in-class (handysize segment) performance in terms of a range of parameters such as low fuel oil consumption, low emissions, EEDI, deadweight intake and lightweight particulars.

The vessel also has excellent manoeuvrability and performance in heavy seas as experienced during the sea trials of the first B.Delta37, MV Wuchang, which was delivered to the owner, The China Navigation Co. Pte. Ltd (CNCo), in October 2013 from Chengxi Shipyard. In the meantime, sister ship MV Wuchow was delivered as well to CNCo. As a result of the successful sea trials, China Navigation confirmed an additional order of eight B.Delta37 bulk carriers at Ouhua Shipyard, increasing their total order number to 24 vessels.

MV La Briantais, the first B.Delta37 for Louis Dreyfus Armateurs, was delivered to its owner in December 2013 from Xingang Shipyard. MV Strategic Alliance, the first B.Delta37 for Strategic Shipping / M.T. Maritime Management, was also delivered from Xingang Shipyard in January 2014.

Along with the B.Delta37 bulk carriers, B.Delta43 version of the bulk carrier is already being built. Discussions about further contracts on other sizes, such as B.Delta25, B.Delta64, B.Delta82 and B.Delta210, are ongoing with several shipowners and yards.

French shipbroking company Barry Rogliano Salles (BRS) brought their valuable support in arranging the B.Delta shipbuilding contracts with the shipyards.
