Ro-Ro Passenger Ship for Adriatic Outer Isles and the Croatian National Waters
In order to enlarge and improve the domestic passenger fleet by using their own shipbuiding capacities, the shipyard Viktor Lenac, the passenger ferry operator Jadrolinija and Brodarski institut (Marine Research & Special Technologies) made joint efforts and investments during the years 2002 and 2003 to develop some new designs. Among the projects developed on that occasion, a preliminary design of a “daily” Ro-Ro passenger ship for the Croatian national waters, for the outer isles of the Adriatic, has been created. A short technical description of the above mentioned design is presented in this article. In addition, the main particulars of the specific equipment for this ship type and its purpose in the light of the actual infrastructure of the harbour are given. The survey of model testing is based on the CFD computational fluid dynamics analysis (made by MARIN-Wageningen) and on towing tests performed by Brodarski institut.
