  • China Merchants Jingling Shipyard commences construction of three methanol-ready tankers with advanced green technologies for Terntank, aiming to achieve a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions.
  • Innovative features, including wind-assisted propulsion and hybrid battery systems, contribute to the tankers’ eco-friendly design, aligning with Terntank’s net-zero emissions goal by 2040.
  • Anticipated delivery in March 2025 underscores a collaborative push towards sustainable maritime practices and meeting stringent industry regulations.

Environmentally-Conscious Collaboration

China Merchants Jingling Shipyard has embarked on the construction of three 15,000 dwt methanol-ready tankers for Danish shipping company Terntank. Norwegian technology firm Kongsberg’s design integrates innovative features to enhance environmental sustainability.

Green Technologies

The tankers, conceptualized by Kongsberg, will feature not only methanol-readiness but also wind-assisted propulsion, a hybrid battery system, and an on-shore power system. These integrated solutions are projected to slash carbon dioxide emissions by 40% compared to conventional marine fuels, with an additional 8% reduction attributed to wind-assisted propulsion.

A Step Towards Emission Reduction Targets

Terntank’s commitment to environmental stewardship is evident in its ambitious target of achieving net-zero emissions by 2040. The combination of methanol usage and advanced propulsion technologies aligns with the stringent requirements set by the EU and the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
