Deltamarin receive an AIP for design of LNG fueled PCTC

Deltamarin and its partner, the French multinational naval engineering company GTT, have been awarded an Approval in Principle (AiP) from the Norwegian classification society DNV, for an innovative LNG-fueled Pure Car and Truck Carrier (PCTC) design.

The AiP was presented to Kristian Knaapi, Sales Manager at Deltamarin, and Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, by Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO of DNV Maritime at the classification society’s headquarter, during the Nor-Shipping maritime trade fair, held in Oslo in april.
Deltamarin and GTT have been cooperating on the development of a new Dual-Fuel PCTC design, able to carry 8000 CEU. This design introduces a new generation of PCTCs, incorporating GTT’s Mark III membrane LNG fuel tank and Deltamarin’s expertise in developing state of the art vessels.

The AiP from DNV confirms that the design of the LNG-fueled PCTC is feasible and that no obstacles exist to prevent the concept from being constructed and operated. Deltamarin and GTT have designed the most compact LNG system in order to optimize cargo capacity and energy consumption while providing maximal vessel LNG autonomy. The 2 bar gauge (barg) design pressure of the LNG fuel tank enables improved pressure holding capabilities and increased operational flexibility especially during bunkering operations.
