FLUME® roll damping tanks for the Eimskipafélag Íslands hf. and Royal Arctic Line A/S newbuildings

Published on:

The three recently ordered 2150 TEU Container vessel newbuilding, designed by Deltamarin Ltd are optimized to operate in the harsh ocean environment of the north Atlantic. In this area you never can expect a calm sea and the risk for ships to come in bad weather situations is high. The seakeeping performance of these vessels is therefore under a special concern in the design, why each of these vessels will be equipped with two FLUME® roll damping tanks.

These tanks are designed to fit into the ship structure without any loss of container storage capacity. The tank design will be exactly aligned with the ships loading scenarios and the internal structure of the tank will be optimized using most modern CFD tools. For the final performance evaluation, Hoppe Marine uses a 6 DOF moving platform, capable to simulate any ship motion and measure the tanks performance of that particular scenario.

This project is the 6th most modern container ship class equipped with a FLUME® roll damping tank from Hoppe Marine. While for this project the intention of the tank installation is mainly crew comfort and safety, FLUME® roll damping tanks nowadays are an attractive solution to increase the loading flexibility and the overall container storage capacity of ULCVs (Ultra Large Container Vessels) by up to 10%.
