Class AIP (approval in principle) granted for Container Feeder series

Wärtsilä Ship Design has developed a series of container feeders in line with our strategic focus on meeting the market demand for the merchant segment. Each of the designs have 3 different versions for various operational requirements, and are ready for the gas age:

  • “Basic configuration” i.e. Conventional HFO as primary fuel
  • “Environmental” i.e. HFO + Scrubber + SCR
  • “Clean” i.e. LNG as the primary fuel

Throughout close cooperation with different class societies, we are happy to announce the below achievement of AIP (approval in principle).

  • The 1500TEU container feeder design, WSD80 1500, (intake of 1400TEU, WSD80 1400 DF, for Dual Fuel technology application version) was verified with AIP by Lloyd’s Register in October 2015.
  • The 2400TEU container feeder design, WSD80 2400, (intake of 2300TEU, WSD80 2300 DF, for Dual Fuel technology application version) was verified with AIP by Lloyd’s Register in October 2015.
  • The 4000TEU container feeder design, WSD80 4000, (intake of 3800TEU, WSD80 3800 DF, for Dual Fuel technology application version) was verified with AIP by DNV GL in September 2015.
