The ultimate reefer ro/ro design
Knud E. Hansen has finalized a new reefer ro/ro ship design where the ship will enter the global trade in bananas as a reefership. The design is developed for the rapid and efficient cargo handling in port, making slow steaming possible.
In order to optimize the handling of the goods, the bridge and the engine are placed in front of the ship and the heights of the four inner decks are increased to 4.5 meters, so they can be used for ro/ro cargo. With this design, the ship has a capacity of 12,500 pallets HC, of which 6,800 are within the ship and the other 5,700 are in reefer containers on the deck of the ship. The ship can be loaded and unloaded in 12 hours. At the back of the ship there are 4,400 lane meters, which corresponds to 900-1000 vehicles, but the space may also be used for general project cargo.
