Efficient EEDI-Compliant Bulk Carrier Series

Foreship together with its partner Visec has developed a series of extremely fuel efficient CSR bulk carriers, called "Sea Dragon". The series includes 35 kdwt (daily consumption 17.2 t/d), 42 kdwt (18.8 t/d), 56 kdwt (23.3 t/d) and 64 kdwt (26.9 t/d) versions. A fuel consumption reduction of 15-30 % compared to current designs is achieved by application of state-of-the-art CFD methods in hull form development and propulsion improvement device design and profound integration of latest engine technology into the propulsion concept to ensure the engine full capacity is utilized. Sea Dragon series is EEDI compliant, and for example, Sea Dragon 42 fulfills EEDI phase 3 (2025 level). Download Sea Dragon 42 data sheet here.

State-of-the-Art CFD Services from Foreship.

Foreship can provide a wide range of CFD services, from potential flow to RANSE (Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes Equations) simulations. We have signed a cooperation agreement with a CFD-specialist Process Flow to provide our customers more complicated and calculation intensive simulations. For easier in-house RANSE simulations we use OpenFOAM and for potential flow calculations nu-Shallo. For more information please contact Janne Niittymäki
