Deltamarin signs an engineering contract for Neptune Lines' next generation PCTCs

Deltamarin has signed an agreement with Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding Ltd. for the design and engineering of the new series of Neptune Lines 4200 CEU Pure Car & Truck Carriers (PCTCs).

Deltamarin signs an engineering contract for Neptune Lines' next generation PCTCs

Neptune Lines and Deltamarin have previously cooperated on the development of the new-generation, future-proof PCTC concept that emphasizes environmental features while ensuring operational performance and safety. The engineering contract, signed with the builder Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding, is a direct continuation of the work and includes the complete basic and detail design of the vessels. 

The ship has been designed taking advantage of Deltamarin’s digital design methods, which are aimed at optimizing the vessel for its future operational scenarios to achieve maximum fuel and environmental efficiency during operation. A core part of digital design is energy system level simulations (energy model) for determining the ships fuel consumption and environmental footprint.

The new highly efficient vessels, under the name Genesis Project, will be powered by LNG. The design includes several features to minimize the ship’s environmental footprint, including an energy storage system, high-voltage shore power, and readiness for a solar power system.

The vessels will be built by Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding Ltd. shipyard in Fuzhou.

“This project aligns with our strategic vision of building international level vessels that meet the evolving needs of our clients. Through this collaboration, we are set to build a series of vessels that will not only redefine the industry standards but also underscore our shared commitment to sustainability, safety and technological advancement.”, says Mr Gao from Fujian Mawei.

“We thank Deltamarin for their excellent support and expertise throughout the Genesis Project, as we together designed our next class of vessel to enter the Neptune Lines fleet and continue improving our environmental performance.”, says Craig Jasienski, CEO of Neptune Lines.

“We are proud that Neptune Lines has chosen us as the Designer for their next generation PCTC vessels and are pleased with the excellent co-operation between participating parties throughout the design development. Secondly, we look forward to working with Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding, providing them with engineering services and supporting them in the execution of this cutting-edge newbuilding program for Neptune Lines.”, says Janne Uotila, CEO of Deltamarin.

The work starts immediately and will be carried out at Deltamarin’s offices in Finland.
