    DNV GL and Huangpu-Wenchong sign JDP on 5,000 TEU LNG dual-fuel containership

    At the Marintec China trade fair in Shanghai, DNV GL entered into a Joint Development Project (JDP) with Huangpu-Wenchong Shipbuilding Company (HPWS) on a 5,000 TEU LNG dual-fuel containership. Ms Wu Ronghui, HPWS Deputy Chief Engineer, and Falk Rothe, Head of DNV GL’s Technical Centre China, signed the JDP.
     
    According to the agreement, HPWS and DNV GL will jointly develop a new energy-efficient 5,000 TEU Panamax container ship for the fast-growing intra-Asia trades. In order to minimize energy consumption, emissions to air, and achieve maximum cargo capacity with lower OPEX, the vessel will use LNG as ship fuel, have an hydrodynamically optimized low resistance ship line, and a more effective structural design. Enhanced ergonomic design features for greater crew comfort, as well as cutting edge intelligent ship technology are further highlights of this new green and smart ship.
     
    The JDP includes drawing assessments, an AIP statement, and a workshop looking into intra-Asia container transportation.
