Dual Fuel Container Vessel 1000

Green Feeder Cont. 1000 is 12.200 mt new generation eco-friendly Coverless Feeder Container vessel. The Vessel design is developed targeting environmentally friendly worldwide transportation through a set of focus areas that helped us to build a green future.

Brodosplit developed the design of container vessels of various TEU capacities. The shipyard decided to develop a new project of coverless dual fuel feeder container vessel, emphasizing environmentally friendly approach and fuel efficiency, simultaneously aiming to achieve EEDI (energy efficiency design index) lower than IMO required for the year 2025.

The Vessel and its equipment is suitable for the transportation of containers, including reefer containers and containers with dangerous goods. Cargo holds have movable cell guides and all container slots in holds, while the deck is usable for Euro pallet-wide containers.
