Project Description

MV Carmel Ecofresh and MV Carmel Bio-Top

Reefer/Container newbuilding – 2 x 500.000 cu.f

MV Carmel cargo hold insulation
  • Initial design by 3rd party.
  • None-optimal solutions and compromises had to be made.
  • Insulation thickness insufficient in some areas. Thermal bridges in some locations impossible to avoid.
  • Overall, acceptable K-value, but not the best solution in terms of mechanical strength and easy maintenance.
  • 6 insulated decks, 18 separate refrigated chambers.
  • Approx 50 x 22 x 18m “black hole” separated by a midship bulkhead.
  • MGIT responsible for all construction in the black hole.
  • Construction of monorail crane (for installation logistics) fitted on H-beam in top deck ceiling.
  • Tranversal steel H-beams, fitted individually.
  • “Deck-flats” – deck pontooons of steelstructure, pre-insulated by MGIT – fitted individually
