Deltamarin, part of AVIC Group, unveiled an LNG-fueled multipurpose inland vessel called the DeltaBreaker. 

Deltamarin’s office in Gdansk developed the multipurpose inland vessel as a response to the increasing utilization of inland waterways, especially in Central Europe.

The DeltaBreaker design combines the features of tug, icebreaker and pusher with some added functionalities.

The hull shape has low resistance and the ability to break ice up to 0.6 meters thick. This way, the inland navigation season can be extended in various parts of the world.

The current design allows operations on waterways of international (CEMT) class IV, however, Deltamarin added that smaller versions of this design can also be developed.

The DeltaBreaker design implements of the Articulated Tug-Barge (ATB) system connection. It allows the pushing of compatible barges on inland and coastal waters.

This opens up the possibility to further develop an efficient design for such barges that can be used for carrying bulk cargo, containers, oil/products, accommodation modules and as LNG transportation/bunkering facilities.

A special place for two 20ft containers has been reserved on the aft deck. Additional functions like firefighting, oil-spill cleaning or environmental measurements may, therefore, be easily incorporated into the design.
