Deltamarin signs contract for Wallenius Wilhelmsen’s Next Generation Shaper class vessels

Deltamarin has signed a design contract with China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Jiangsu) Co Ltd for the design and engineering of Wallenius Wilhelmsen’s next-generation Pure Car & Truck Carriers (PCTCs).

The signed contract includes the complete basic and detail design work for four confirmed, and up to eight optional, units of 9,350CEU class methanol dual-fuel PCTCs ordered by Wallenius Wilhemsen. Prior to this engineering contract, Deltamarin has executed the outline and contract design of the new vessels.

Designated ‘The Shaper Class’, the vessels represent Wallenius Wilhelmsen’s commitment to environmental goals, contributing to their aim of achieving net-zero emissions solutions by 2027.

Prioritizing energy efficiency, the vessels are designed to utilize alternative fuel sources, such as methanol, upon delivery. They are also ammonia-ready and can be converted as soon as ammonia becomes available in a safe and secure way.

The vessels will be built by China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Jiangsu) Co Ltd and the first will be delivered in the second half of 2026.

China Merchants Group has demonstrated significant growth in its shipbuilding business over recent years and is now positioned among the top three shipbuilding groups in China.
