Seaspan gets stamp of approval for new feeder boxship design

British classification society Lloyd’s Register (LR) has awarded approval in principle to containership owner Seaspan for its next-generation feeder boxship design.

The vessel, measuring 198 m in length and developed by German naval architects Technolog is set to be powered by LNG but can be converted to run on ammonia.

LR, Seaspan, and Technolog will soon begin work on the second phase of this project, which will be a dual-fuel ammonia feeder vessel.

“Seaspan and LR have partnered to address important topics for many years, and this is an excellent result of one of those partnerships. Technolog’s input has also provided a creative solution and demonstrated their leadership in the ship design and the feeder ship segment,” said Peter Jackson, SVP of assets and technology at Seaspan.

The project builds on the previous work LR has conducted with Seaspan such as the Methane Abatement in Maritime Innovation initiative and Cargo Fire and Loss Innovation initiative. The two are also collaborating on initiatives focusing on how the energy transition is affecting seafarer safety.
