Bahri Abha

Bahri Abha

RoRo vessel with container capacity for Bahri

This Concept and Tender Design was developed for Bahri, (NSCSA) Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The vessel is flexible, has a large capacity and is optimised for fast turnaround in harbour. Fully independent with regard to maneuvering and loading/unloading, these six vessels are unique given that their size is smaller than others in the Bahri fleet, yet they in total have more cargo lifting capabilities and lower fuel consumption. It is estimated that these lighter weight new vessels will consume 45 % less fuel than the current ships, thereby delivering considerable cost savings.
