Turkish Company, MATESIS is searching for partners for its project idea, aiming to design energy efficient sea-river coaster. An assessment is carried out for the river-sea fleets of the European Countries and the objective of this project is to design new generation coasters for European rivers and open seas in line with the EU and IMO regulations.

Objectives :

  • Replace the old fleet with the new generation coaster after regulations on harmful gas emission of IMO Tier 3, 4 and EU SECA, 
  • Generate the electricity with the integrated solar top of the cargo hatch covers, 
  • Increase cargo capacity by 20% compared to existing ships, 
  • Reduce steel lightweight significantly using structural optimisation 
  • Satisfy COMF+ acoustic and vibration standards for the living quarters, 
  • Improve stability and seakeeping performance of the vessel by lowering the centre of gravity.

Motivation 

  • Zero emission maritime transport in European canals and rivers using batteries charged with solar panels integrated to the hatch covers. 
  • Energy efficient diesel-electric propulsion system to be implemented in a commercial vessel. 
  • Reduced lightweight using composite hatch covers, masts and ballast piping systems for the first time in a coaster ship. 
  • Box shape cargo space which is suitable for any kind of cargo. 
  • Increased energy efficiency through recycled waste heat.
