JUBILEE CLASS DESIGN
Leveraging on its experience and shipbuilding heritage, Jurong Shipyard developed its in-house proprietary “Jubilee Class” design from its earlier range of 830 TEU and 1,100 TEU series containerships. The shipyard first ventured into containership building in 1997 with the construction of four 830 TEU units when it launched the proprietary containership design. Following the successful launch of the 830 TEU series, the shipyard further enhanced and developed the design for the 1,100 TEU container series. Six such units were built, each having a service speed of 19.5 knots.
The success and the strong demand for this category of feeder container vessels led to the launch of the “Jubilee Class” containership series, comprising container vessels in the 2,500 TEU and 2,600 TEU series. Two units of the 2,500 TEU series were delivered to German owner, Reederei Karl Schlüter in 2003 and 2004. A total of eight units, six for Wan Hai Lines and two for Reederei F Laeisz, were ordered when the shipyard launched its 2,600 TEU design series in 2003.
With a high service speed of up to 23 knots, the 2,646 TEU containership design is capable of high homogeneous container intake of more than 1,960 TEU at 14 ton per TEU. Measuring 213m x 32.2m x 16.5m, it is equipped with 400 reefers and has a high container-carrying capacity of 2,646 TEU (1,688 TEU on deck and 958 TEU in hold). It has a lashing bridge that allows for the loading of two tiers of high-cube containers in the hold. Its hull has been specially designed to minimize propeller-induced vibration for operational performance.
