Deltamarin signs an engineering contract for Neptune Lines’ Genesis Class PCTCs

September 5th, 2023 – Deltamarin has signed an agreement with Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding Ltd. for the design and engineering of the new series of Neptune Lines 4200 CEU Genesis Class Pure Car & Truck Carriers (PCTCs).

Neptune Lines and Deltamarin have together developed a new-generation, future-proof PCTC concept based on state-of-the-art technology, emphasizing environmental features alongside operational performance and safety. The work began already in 2020, analysing the means and technologies to enhance the environmental and operational performance of the future fleet. 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’sdigital 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.
