World’s First LNG Dual-Fuel Oil Tanker Delivered


China produced the first LNG dual-fuel Suezmax oil tanker in the world. Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) was presented in Guangzhou, southern China, says an article published in ECNS.

LNG-powered modes

The 158,000 dwt ship is south China’s biggest LNG dual-fuel green tanker.

About 274 metres long, 48 metres broad, and 23.7 metres deep is how deep the ship is.

For both fuel- and LNG-powered modes, it complies with the Tier III emission criteria set forth by the International Maritime Organization.

Liquefied natural gas 

Methane, which weighs only approximately 45% as much as the same amount of water, is the primary component of LNG, which stands for liquefied natural gas.

When a ship is propelled by LNG, its emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, particulate matter, and sulphur oxide are reduced by around 20%, 85%, and 99 %, respectively.

Achieved full coverage

Singapore’s East Pacific Shipping Company placed an order with GSI in December 2019 for two LNG-powered carriers.

The delivery marks that GSI has achieved are comprehensive coverage in the field of oil tanker construction.
