The ECX-2300 is a design concept for the next generation of Container Feeder Vessels with a capacity from 2000 to 3000 TEU. The design focuses on Energy Efficiency and low Environmental impact, Compact size and Cost efficiency and Maximum Flexibility with regard to storage and transit speed – hence the project name ECX-2300.
The hull lines are particularly fine with an impact reducing bow, and being equipped with a highly fuel-efficient ultra-long-stroke engine - a MAN B&W G60MEC9.2 – the vessel is believed to be the most fuel efficient of its kind and size. The forward position of the deck house optimizes the number of container storage positions on deck considering the line of vision from the bridge while maintaining crew comfort in bad weather. The three rope luffing cranes are optional if the vessel shall call in ports that are not served by shore cranes. The forward of these cranes is off set from the centerline in order not to block the vision straight ahead from the bridge.
Development of Design, including:
Containers 1546 TEU on deck and 728 TEU in holds. Reefer containers 262 RFEU on deck and 276 RFEU in holds.
