Oshima Shipbuilding and DNV GL have introduced a new open-hatch general cargo carrier design which incorporates composite tween decks to save weight.
A prominent feature of the design is the use of tween decks to maximizes the vessel concepts space utilization.
Several new technologies for general cargo carriers have been implemented, such as composite tween decks, a PTO/PTI shaft generator and batteries.
The cooperation with DNV GL on developing the overall design and the tween deck solution was very successful and we are very proud to receive the AiP, after seeing the first full-size prototype of the tween decks through testing, he adds.
One of the designs most prominent features is the use of tween decks to maximizes the vessel concepts space utilization.
