Deltamarin further contracted to work on Viking Line's newbuild

The Turku-based company has signed EUR 11 mln worth contracts with the Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry which is constructing a new gas-run ferry for Viking Line.

The deal covers engineering and construction support services, including basic and detail design, as well as comprehensive project management support and supervision services to the Chinese shipyard during vessel construction.

The engineering and pre-construction project management support will be executed mainly at Deltamarin's offices in Finland over an estimated period of 12 months. The supervision and other construction support services will be carried out until planned delivery of the vessel in 2020.

Earlier, Deltamarin developed the new vessel concept together with Viking Line, as well as assisted in the tender and contract phases. During concept works, particular attention was paid to hull form development, weight control, energy efficiency (incl. waste heat recovery and two 24 m high rotor sails), and improvement of the General Arrangement. According to Deltamarin, the new concept is 10% more energy efficient than the shipping line's pioneering LNG ferry, the Viking Grace.

Once delivered, the newbuild will offer space for up to 2,800 passengers, as well as 1,500 lane metres of cargo capacity across the Turku-Åland Islands-Stockholm route.

"We are very happy about the constructive cooperation with Viking Line. From a naval architectural point of view, they presented us with every concept developer's dream challenge: to come up with a concept that is even more energy efficient in relation to cargo capacity than their Viking Grace, one of the most energy-efficient and sophisticated ferries on the market," Nina Savijoki, Sales Manager at Deltamarin, commented.
