China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Weihai) Co. Ltd. on Monday (15 August) held a groundbreaking ceremony to kickstart the construction of the first of six liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual-fuel Ro-Ro ships, according to the China Association of the National Shipbuilding Industry on 16 August.
The 7,000 unit capacity Ro-Ro vessels were ordered by Singapore-based shipping firm Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS).
EPS construction representative Myung Hwan Kang, DNV classification society representative Yan Shifeng, Weihai Jinling general manager Zheng Hehui, deputy general manager Liu Xinnan, chief engineer Ou Shubo and members of the project team were present at the groundbreaking ceremony.
The first ship has a length of 199.9 metres, a beam of 38 metres, a design draft of 8.6 metres, a gross tonnage of 72,000 tonnes, a design speed of 19.5 knots, a total of 12 cargo decks, a high-pressure dual-fuel main engine, and two 2,000-cubic-meter LNG gas storage tanks.
To meet the requirements of IMO TIER III emission standards, dual-fuel hybrid power and a number of environmental protection technologies were adopted to improve the energy efficiency of ships, while reducing pollution to the ocean with significant advantages in energy conservation.
