Finnish ship designer Deltamarin launched its new ferry design named DeltaLinx during the BaltExpo 2015 exhibition held in Gdańsk, Poland, from September 7 to September 9.
DeltaLinx is a compact ferry designed for short coastal routes, and its length of approximately 80 meters allows easy operations between smaller towns and congested ports.
The ferry can carry 800 passengers on two decks. The main car deck can accommodate up to 82 cars (incl. partial mezzanine deck) or 16 trucks.
The design also features a propulsion system that utilizes 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.
