Deltamarin Ltd to design five 38,000 deadweight ton (dwt) stainless steel parcel chemical tankers for Stolt Nielsen subsidiary.

The contract, with Stolt Nielsen Ship Finance Ltd, a subsidiary of Stolt-Nielsen Limited, is for the tankships to be built at Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Co. Ltd. in China. The design contract includes Approval Design and 3D Modelling of cargo deck and engine room areas.

The ships are designed to deliver substantial improvements in fuel efficiency, while providing operational flexibility with their fully stainless steel cargo tanks, cargo pumps, heating and cooling capacity.  With a relatively shallow draft when fully loaded, the ships will consume significantly less fuel compared with existing parcel tankers. The hull form and propulsion arrangement are further developed from the successful B.Delta bulk carriers configuration of hull form and propulsion arrangement.


Each of the ships will have 43 stainless steel tanks with a total volume of 44,000 cubic meters. The parcel tankers will meet both Marpol Annex I and Annex II cargo requirements, complying with common structural rules for oil tankers.  The ships will have IMO I, II and III capabilities and will be able to handle the full range of difficult-to-handle cargoes that Stolt Tankers carries.


The value of the design work is approximately 25 man-years and the work will be carried out at Deltamarin’s offices in Europe, utilizing the partner network.

This new B.Delta newbuilding project has been brokered by Deltamarin’s partner Barry Rogliano Salles (BRS).
