CON-RO project completed

21st Feb 2013

On 21 February 2013, the last in a series of four 45,000 dwt CON-RO cargo carriers was successfully delivered to owners at the DSME Okpo shipyard.

The vessels, built under the supervision of one of SeaQuest site teams, offer 6,500 linear meters of vehicle deck space and a capacity of about 3,000 TEU, and can be ranked among the world’s largest CON-ROs.

The most outstanding innovation featured in these vessels is the large, slanted ramp door at the stern, able to support loads of up to 350 T. The 50m custom built stern ramp gives the ships greater accessibility to vehicular traffic than conventional RO-RO’s, and was a challenge for the manufacturer, the yard and the supervision team.

The same SeaQuest team is now looking forward to a similar project for the same owners at STX Offshore and Engineering shipyard in Jinhae, the steel cutting is scheduled for July 2013.
