Design completed on new 2,500-TEU eco fuel container carrier


Germany's HB Hunte Engineering in Oldenburg and Leer-headquartered Hartmann Reederei have come up with a new, optimised green ship design for a 2,500 TEU container carrier fuelled with LNG.
Hartmann Reederei is renowned as an expert for innovative gas carriers and the new eco-friendly container carrier will deploy proven features from the company's pioneering ECO STAR gas carriers.
"The new design features the innovative 'Svelte' bow, which enables a vessel to improved seakeeping at higher transit speeds and improved fuel efficiency. The enhanced hull lines minimise ballast water demand, which again leads to lower power demand, lower consumption and lower emissions.
"With the superstructures located at the bow, the new design also ensures an ideal line of sight for a container carrier," according to a company statement.
Other features, like the MAN Kappel propeller with rudder bulb system and the HB Hunte Twist-Flow rudder, reduce energy loss and improve propulsion efficiency. The new eco fuel vessel type will also comprise the ability to meet IMO Tier III regulations.
The basic design process has been completed, and negotiations with a few interested parties are underway already. The first 2,500 TEU eco fuel container carrier could be launched within 24 months after closing, the statement added.
