Deltamarin has signed design contracts with China Merchants Jinling shipyard for the complete basic and detail design packages of the 10th, 11th and 12th Stena E-Flexer vessels for two different end clients. (Brittany Ferries and Marine Atlantic)
Deltamarin supported Flexens in its Power2AX project by conducting a ferry comparison study with the aim of investigating the substitution of diesel-fuelled ferries with hydrogen ferries in the Åland archipelago.
Flexens Oy Ab is a Finnish project development company.
Flexen’s unique Power2AX project focuses on demonstrating a 100% renewable energy system in the Åland Islands.
Deltamarin’s study provides an estimation of the technical feasibility of introducing fuel cell ferries in the Åland archipelago that utilise hydrogen as fuel.
Deltamarin signed a contract with Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC). It covers basic and detail design services for Tallink’s new LNG-powered shuttle ferry set to operate between Helsinki in Finland and Tallinn in Estonia.
The value of the contract with RMC is about €7.5M. The work will be carried out over a period of about 16-18 months at Deltamarin’s offices in Finland and Poland with the assistance of network companies.
The Tallink shuttle ferry is the biggest vessel yet to be built by RMC. It will accommodate 2,800 passengers and will have 1,900 lane meters for articulated road vehicles, cars, lorries, etc. Utilising the newest technology and innovative solutions, the ferry will be extremely environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient. It will run on dual fuel with the main source of fuel being low-emission liquefied natural gas (LNG). The ferry is expected to be delivered early in 2022.
Deltamarin wrote an article about Viking Line and their efforts to operate in a more environmental-friendly way. Main focus is on the use of wind energy as an additional source of thrust on board their vessels.
