The Y-shape Hull is a structure that can be used to build anything that has the potential to sustain a hit. It's the new way of building structures that rely
on an optimal impact resistance. These simulations show a collision under the same conditions and speed.

The calculation show the impact until the inner wall is pierced. The simulations show that, the inner wall of the conventional hull is pierced after an absorption
force of 5.42 Mega Joule. Were as with the YShape Hull, the inner wall is pierced after an absorption power of 14.96 Mega Joule.
Other than being simply safer, the Y-shape Hull offers your even more compelling benefits.
Keep your nautical record clean and green by reducing the risks of leakage or cargo spills in the event of a collision or grounding.
Your new vessel built with the Y-shape Hull will be as safe as can be. The Y-shape Hull absorbs more energy upon impact, and prevents the rupture of your cargo tank. In the event of a collision, your ship will maintain stability. The probability of hull rupture is much lower than with a conventional hull.
Be part of this new sustainable solution. By using the Y-shape Hull and having the possibility of sailing with LNG, you have the opportunity to lower your ship's CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) emissions, and bring your particulate matter emission down to none.
The simplicity of the Y-shape Hull structure makes it easy for you to build. It allows a good measure of production automation. Build a new vessel with the Y-shape Hull or use your standard structural steel.
Decrease your chances of oil spills, and keep your record clean. In ports and coastal areas with high maritime traffic, you and your tanker can enjoy optimal protection with the Y-shape Hull.
Protect your LNG-fuelled ship with the Y-shape Hull and significantly decrease the risk of damage to your cryogenic tanks upon collision.

The humble stalk of reed. Known and used for thousands of years. One day, its structure became an inspiration to. Today, this inspiration has become an impact-resistant design that can save lives and money, and contribute to environmental protection.
Developed by JWL Ludolphy, then working for Royal Schelde Naval Shipbuilding, a member of the DAMEN Schelde Naval Shipbuilding Group (DSNS), the Y-shape Hull design has been tested extensively since the 90's. The interest in the design was originally in developing a construction resistant to extreme loads, such as explosions. DAMEN was studying the performance of steel constructions and how alternative constructions could absorb more energy before rupturing.
When DAMEN became convinced that the structure was able to sustain a high impact, they initiated the development of the Y-shape Hull and eventually executed a series of crash tests.
The subsequent development and testing was done in collaboration with TNO, Chemgas and Rensen-Drissen Shipbuilding. After the extraordinary performance of the Y-shape hull during the crash test, DAMEN decided to patent the design.
Although the original application of the Y-shape hull was originally intended for the inland tanker industry, Chemgas was the first company willing to invest in the development and adoption of the Y-shape Hull design on a push gas barge.
In collaboration with Rensen-Driessen Shipbuilding the Y-shape Hull gets improved and produced.
The first type C tanker using the Y-shape hull design was the MTS APPOLO, developed by Rensen-Driessen and owned by G.C.M. Deen Shipping.
The Argonon, the first LNG inland vessel in the world, uses the Y-shape hull design to set sail safely.
The Y-shape Hull obtained Class Approval for large LNG bunker tankers with Y shape Hull.
With a decreased probability of hull penetration, and the chance to safely use larger cargo tanks, it's blue skies ahead. The simplicity of the Y-shape Hull structure is what also makes it so practical. Have a look at those who already have set sail safely.
The ship is suitable for the bunkering of marine vessels and is able to deliver two grades of bunker oil separately. The Argonon is sailing on dual fuel.
