The LCTC (Large Car and Truck Carrier) MV Titania is part of the 7th generation of this design from DSME in South Korea. Vessel no 2 and 4 will be delivered to Wilhelmsen Lines Shipowning Malta Ltd while Vessel no 1 and 3 will be delivered to Wallenius Lines.
The vessel is arranged with 13 decks for cargo, engine room aft, wheelhouse forward and living quarters in one tier on the upper deck. The mooring decks are arranged on deck 8. The cargo holds are constructed with one row of pillars in general, except for two pillars in the aft part (aft of fr 78), and a longitudinal pillar spacing of 9.6 m.
The vessel is constructed with two watertight decks (deck 5 and 8) and one gas tight deck (deck 10). Watertight closing of deck 5 is by means of a hoistable ramp and cover while deck 8 is closed by means of a watertight hinged door and deck 10 by means of a gastight hinged door.
Cargo Hold Arrangement & Capacity
Heavy cargo units can be loaded on deck 1, 3, 5 and 8. Deck 2, 4, 6, 7 and 9 are divided into liftable sections to accommodate a variable cargo mix efficiently. These deck panels are hoisted and lowered by two mobile deck lifters.
Cargo can be loaded and discharged over a wide and strong stern ramp or via the smaller side ramp. The side ramp can give access to deck 5 and 6, thus permitting two separate cargo flows during loading and discharging. All cargo decks are generally accessed via fixed ramps.
Tank Arrangement and Capacities
Water ballast can be carried in the double bottom, wing tanks forward and the forepeak and aftpeak tank. To improve stability, the ship carries fixed ballast in one double bottom centre tank.
The vessel is powered by one electronically controlled slow speed, two stroke main engine and propelled by a single fixed pitch (FP) propeller cast in Ni-Al-Bronze. The engine room installation meets the requirements for the class notation Unattended Machinery Room (UMS). All engines complies with forthcoming IMO Tier II regulations.
A green Passport, issued by Lloyds Register according to IMO’s Guidelines on Ship Recycling, 2003, lists all materials and substancesknown to be potentially hazardous. Water ballast is treated by a chemical-free state-of-the-art water ballast treatment system. All engines complies with forthcoming IMO Tier II regulations for reduced NOX-emissions.
