DNV OKs Hyundai Mipo’s intra-Europe feeder design

Classification society DNV has granted approval in principle to South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Mipo for a new design of intra-Europe 1,900 TEU feeder containerships.

The approval follows a joint development project between the duo aimed at developing a “highly efficient and reliable” feeder vessel design to respond to the European shortsea container market, DNV said in a statement.

DNV said it has reviewed the design for compliance with its rules for containerships, including the option of using LNG as a ship fuel.

In addition, the classification society provided technical support on the basic design in terms of stability, cargo loading and unloading, and the machinery arrangement concept and accommodation.

Similar to the previous Congreen 1,800 TEU design development project, the design ensures extended Euro-size container stowage in the hold and on deck, and 45ft of container stowage in a designated hold and on deck, it said.

Moreover, the ship also fulfills the requirements of EEDI phase III at diesel mode by a “wide margin”.

DNV added that one of the design options features a new LNG fuel concept, with a type C tank located behind the deckhouse, also incorporating the latest version of the 6S60ME-C10.5 main engine.
