Deltamarin wins contract for LNG-powered PCTCs

Finland-based Deltamarin, a part of China Merchants Group, said it has secured an engineering contract for the new series of Hoegh Autoliners Aurora Class LNG-powered PCTCs.

Last week, Hoegh Autoliners entered into a deal with China Merchants Heavy Industry in Jiangsu for four multi-fuel PCTCs that can run on LNG.

The deal includes four fixed and eight optional multi-fuel and “zero-carbon ready” Aurora class vessels. The Aurora class vessels with a capacity to carry up to 9,100 cars will have DNV’s ammonia and methanol ready notation.

Deltamarin has recently the completed conceptual design of the ships for Hoegh Autoliners.

The engineering contract signed with the builder, CMI Jiangsu shipyard, is a direct continuation of the work and includes complete basic and detail design of the vessels, Deltamarin said in a statement.

Delatamarin said it would carry out the work at its offices in Finland, Poland and China while the work would have a “significant impact” on the group’s workload.

The firm did not disclose the financial details of the contract.

It said that the project would start immediately and continue until the delivery of the first vessel in the second half of 2024.
