Deltamarin has secured a contract with Chengxi Shipyard to design a self-unloading Panamax bulk carrier.

The company will provide detailed design and procurement support to CSL International, which will build the vessel.

The 71,900dwt carrier will be designed with B.delta standard bulker designs for fuel efficiency and improved cubic capacity.

The design uses 3D product modelling techniques to allow efficient space utilisation, correct space reservations as well as quick and easy alterations and coordinated design, the company said.

Deltamarin said the carrier can cruise at a speed of 14.5kt.
