Dual Fuel Container Vessel 2000

Green Feeder Cont. 2000 is a 24.650 MT new generation eco-friendly Feeder Container vessel. The first Green vessel with high added value built to the highest EU environmental regulations which globally achieve the largest fuel savings.

Inspired by nature’s constant struggle to keep our planet clean and safe, we devoted ourselves to develop container vessel powered by LNG dual fuelled two-stroke diesel engine and the world’s the most efficient safe and environmentally friendly 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 vessel for transport of various container sizes. The shipyard decided to develop a new project of dual fuel feeder container vessel, emphasizing ecologically friendly approach and fuel efficiency, simultaneously aiming to achieve EEDI (energy efficiency design index) lower than IMO required for the year 2025.

The world’s key ports have committed themselves to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) while continuing their role as a transportation and economic centers. The Environmental Ship Index (ESI) identifies seagoing ships that perform better in reducing air emissions than required by the current emission standards of the International Maritime Organization, the Environmental Ship Index.

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


  • The Vessel and her equipment will be suitable for worldwide service. The Vessel is an environmentally friendly sea-going container ship intended to carry containers in accordance with the Vessel’s description. The vessel is strengthened and equipped for the ICE class.
  • A single screw diesel engine drove Container Vessel with a bulbous bow, transom stern, and forecastle.
  • Living quarters including the navigation bridge and engine room located aft.
  • Double bottom/double side tanks and peak tanks intended for segregated ballast.

Handling the hatch covers to be done using fittings for 20’ and 40’ container-spreader as well as for cargo operation. Maximum weight per panel not to exceed 35t, including lashing material remaining on the panel.
