Chengxi Shipyard to Build Deltamarin's Bulk Carriers

Press Release
Wednesday, April 04, 2012

The new orders are the first B. Delta 37 bulk carriers to be built at Chengxi shipyard and have been specifically amended to take into account specific requirements of China Navigation.

Tianjin Xingang Shipbuilding Heavy Industries Co. is currently building other B. Delta 37 handy-size bulk carriers for Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LDA) and M.T.M. Ship Management Pte Ltd. / Strategic Shipping Inc. and additional shipbuilding contracts are expected to be signed within a few months.

The vessels to be built for China Navigation Company shall have the following main particulars:
•    Length over all 180 m.
•    Beam 30 m.
•    Scantling draft 10.50 m.
•    Deadweight 39,500 metric tonnes.
•    Cargo cubic 48,500 m3.

Deltamarin has focused on fuel efficiency in the designs. The service speed at design draught shall be 14.0 knots, and the model tested daily fuel oil consumption at design draft shall be 18 t, including 15 percent seamargin, ISO conditions. The EEDI shall be 15.4 percent less than the requirements to come into force.

The new contracts further strengthen the position of the B. Delta designs in the market. The B. Delta design’s extremely low fuel consumption has awakened the interest of many ship owners and shipbuilders. Deltamarin will take care of the Basic and Detail design of the vessels, as well as technical procurement handling and will also have a site team to take the design to production.

There are currently ongoing discussions to build B. Delta series vessels in other sizes, such as the B. Delta 25, B. Delta 64, B. Delta 82, B. Delta 95, B. Delta 210 and B. Delta 250. The B. Delta 37 series has also been further developed with several alternative arrangements or specifications including box shape holds, open hatch arrangements, ice class, timber deck cargo and others.

The work will be carried out at Deltamarin’s offices in Europe and China and utilizing the partner network. The value of the contractual design work for the Bulk Carriers is approximately 35 man-years.
