Hai Yang Shi You 301

Yantian Port on Sunday (2 June) achieved a significant milestone when it became the first port in China to achieve simultaneous LNG bunkering operations of two ships. 

Bunkering vessels Xin Ao Pu Tuo Hao and Hai Yang Shi You 301 performed bonded LNG bunkering operations on foreign ships at berths 9 and 16 of Yantian International Container Terminal respectively.

The ships refuelled containerships Zim Coral and Damietta Express with a total of about 10,000 cubic metres (m3) of LNG bunker fuel.

In November 2022, Yantian Port completed the first LNG bunkering of an international ship in Shenzhen, becoming the fourth port in the world and the first port in South China with the ability to simultaneously perform terminal loading and unloading and LNG bunkering.

Yantian Port has carried out 30 ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operations and completed nearly 140,000 cubic metres of LNG refuelling. Among them, from January 2024 to date, Yantian Port has completed 88,000 cubic metres of LNG fuel refuelling, and the total refuelling volume has exceeded the whole year of 2023.

China: River-sea LNG bunkering vessel named and delivered in Shanghai

China’s river-to-sea LNG bunkering vessel, which was built locally, was named and delivered in Shanghai on Monday (19 July), according to the Shanghai Association of Shipbuilding Industry (SASIC). 

The 14,000 cubic metre (cbm) ship, Huaihe Nengyuan Qihang, was independently developed, designed and built by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Co., Ltd for Huaihe Energy Holding Group as part of China’s "Gasification of the Yangtze River” project.

The ship is capable of travelling through the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge all year round and has been dubbed a “Customised Yangtze River” LNG refuelling and transportation ship.

The ship is equipped with the B-type LNG containment system independently developed by Hudong-Zhonghua and authorised by a national patent.

According to SASIC, this was the first time such a system has been applied to a domestic LNG  refuelling and transportation ship, marking a major breakthrough in the B-type LNG containment system developed by China with independent intellectual property rights.
