Kvaerner Masa Marine has developed a unique multi-mission cargo linerseries for container, bulk, and breakbulk ship designs. Using a systems based design process approach combined with identified market requirements, KMMdeveloped this design series to meet mission requirements of varying cargo capacities between 400 and 800 TEU and varying speeds of 16 to 18 knots.
The design series have common bows, engine room/sterns, and deckhouses. Configuring the parallel midbody with 5, 6, or 7 cargo hold modules enables a range of cargo capacities to be met. This systems based design approach using midbody hold modules provides shipowners and shipyards with a flexible design with minimal design cost.
