The innovative solution for mixed stowing of container provides a great improvement in flexibility of container handling. At the same time the stowing process is becoming much more efficient and faster with adequate time and cost savings. This stowing principle was already used for the design of the IPP-STREAM Container Vessels with different ship dimensions and capacities.
The design of vessels can be optimized so it will be able to handle the full range of container sizes in use today such as 20’ - 40’- 45’- 48’ and - 49’ Container. Apart from this adaptability in sizing, the container stacks on the deck of the vessel are laid out to achieve higher stack weights and enable individual storage patterns and loading operations at each individual cell. This is an innovative feature to drastically decrease the time consuming for stowing also by avoiding re-stowing in harbours.
