Cargo ship: Long narrow ‘tweendecker

The Hartman Marine Group of The Netherlands, in conjunction with Conoship International and Vuyk Engineering Groningen, has developed a new type of ship specifically to cater for long and odd-sized cargoes, such as offshore equipment and windmills.

Known as the Hartman M2 Runner, the design features a high freeboard and narrow superstructure located on the starboard side of the stern as well as a 219,000ft³ hold equipped with a removable and adjustable ‘tweendeck. The 22.9m by 15m vessel is classed to sail in ‘open top’ configuration, with the hatch covers lifted, which allows the carriage of tall or large objects. JS
