Delphin Shipping Adds Super Fuel-Saver to Its Fleet


Greek ship operator Delphin Shipping has pioneered a fuel-saving supramax bulk carrier that burns 14% less fuel oil than other vessels of its class, type and size.

The vessel, Aquila, was based on a Chinese design by Shanghai Ship Research and Design Institute (SDARI), with a unique propulsion device known as a Mewis duct. The ship’s design appraisal, build and sea trials were supervised by Lloyd’s Register.

Aquila’s output has been reduced by almost 1,000 kW to 8,500 kW while its fuel consumption is significantly less than similar bulk carries, falling significantly from 29.4 tonnes to 26 tonnes at a speed of 14 knots.
