Design Philosophy EasyMax
For, and in close co-operation with Royal Wagenborg and Royal Niestern Sander, we developed the EasyMax-type: a next generation Open Top (hatch coverless) ICE-classed 1A general cargo vessel.
The challenge in this project was to get a maximum hold volume, maximum deadweight and minimal fuel consumption within the size limitations of the vessel. The combined effort of the shipyard, the owner, and us resulted in a fuel efficient, high capacity (cargo intake and hold capacity) general cargo vessel but without any major increase in overall dimensions or tonnage. The ability of Open Top sailing in combination with the bridge on the forward side of the vessel enhances the vessels flexibility for high special cargo.
In addition, an energy-efficient propulsion system only of a 2,999 kW engine is installed, which leads to a service speed of 11.0 kn and a extremely low fuel consumption and saves over 60% in CO2- emissions compared to her peer group. The hull shape has also been optimised for various different draughts, resulting in an ultra-low Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), a true champion in efficiency and sustainability in her class. Therefore, we are very proud of our role in this project and this one of a kind multipurpose Open Top vessel.
