Deltamarin – IWSA Supporter
Deltamarin launched their new showcase ro-pax vessel “DeltaChallenger” during the Nor-Shipping 2015 exhibition in Oslo. The design incorporates in an unforeseen way the latest technologies available, many of which are not yet used on any other ro-pax vessel. To reduce fuel consumption the vessel has six rotor sails by Norsepower, giving ca. 10% of the total propulsion power (1.3 MW).
Deltamarin is a ship design, offshore engineering and construction Group operating in the marine and offshore industries worldwide. Our services include the full range of consulting, design and engineering as well as procurement, construction and installation.
The DeltaChallenger has Impressive fuel economy and manoeuvrability is gained through the combination of the rotor sails, the dual-fuel electric machinery, four power plants (2 x 6 MW and 2 x 3 MW) and the new compact Azipod D pod propulsion system from ABB. The steering unit of the pod can be fitted in one deck so that it does not hamper the loading of cars. The vessel will have GTT Mark III membrane LNG tanks of totally 1,200 m3. The tanks give superior layout advantages making new efficient loading and unloading configurations possible without decreasing passenger and cargo capacity.
The air conditioning and ventilation has been optimised by Carrier. The vessel utilises heat recovery and demand controlled ventilation to ensure maximum comfort while at the same time minimising the energy consumed.
Very effective loading and unloading is guaranteed by the possibility to simultaneously load and unload on two levels of the lower hold. The ship will have totally 2,720 m of trailer lanes on main and upper deck. There are 480 car lanes / 104 cars in two levels in lower hold which can be loaded with maximum number of trailers. Alternatively by means of hoistable car decks in use, the ship could be loaded with maximum of 950 cars.
The vessel can carry up to 950 passengers and 50 crew members. There are 267 cabins reserved for passengers and 32 for crew. Deadweight of the vessel is 7,900 t and main dimensions 200 m in length overall, 30.4 m breadth and 6.0 m draught. The service speed is 18.5 knots at design draught.
