Conoship ‘future-proof’ vessel design pushes ahead


Gelibolu Shipyard in Turkey has started construction on the first of a series of eco-friendly and “future-proof” cargo vessels. 

Developed by Dutch design and engineering company, Conoship International Projects (CIP), the diesel-electric, future fuels-ready 3,600 dwt vessel is suited for sea-river operations. 

The vessel is set for delivery in 2023. 

This vessel is also set for wind-assisted propulsion by two Econowing VentiFoils. Depending on the sailing route, this could effectively curb fuel consumption by 10 per cent. 

A number of variants of this vessel have been worked on, including a 3,800 dwt and a 5,800 dwt version.

“A new design concept for the 5,800 dwt [version] is in development and will be brought to market soon,” the company said.

Holland Shipyards Group will build two more 3,600 dwt vessels and three more 3,800 dwt vessels for an undisclosed owner set for delivery in 2024.
