Deltamarin said it has launched its new ferry design “DeltaLinx”.
DeltaLinx is a compact ferry designed for short coastal routes to link small neighbouring towns with an emphasis on minimal environmental footprint, the Finish company said in a statement.
The DeltaLinx design features a propulsion system that utilises LNG as fuel to eliminate sulphur oxides (SOx) and to reduce amounts of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon dioxide (CO2) in exhaust gases.
A large LNG tank below the car deck is designed for weekly refuelling.
The main car deck can accommodate up to 82 cars (incl. partial mezzanine deck) or 16 trucks.
According to Deltamarin, the vessel length of approximately 80 meters allows easy operations between smaller towns and congested ports.
