Taiwan state-owned CPC Corporation Monday introduced two 1,999 dwt diesel electric powered newbuild bunkering tankers, Chung Yu No. 21 and Chung Yu No. 22, to the maritime market.
Construction of the mass flowmeter (MFM) equipped vessels was contracted to Singapore shipyard Triyards in 2016 and the vessels were transported to a Vietnam facility for trial tests in July 2017, it says.
The double-hulled vessels, which will be based at Kaohsiung port, each cost NTD $367 million ($12.4 million) and are the first domestic diesel electric powered ships in Taiwan with a hull capacity of over 500 metric tonnes (mt).
In a speech, Chairman Dai Qian noted CPC Corporation currently operating a total of nine traditionally fuelled bunkering vessels in Taiwan with the biggest ship having an oil carrying capacity of 1,550 mt.
The Chung Yu No. 21 and Chung Yu No. 22 each has an oil storage capacity of 2,700 mt and feature a propeller system that is able to reduce fuel consumption by up to 29% and carbon emissions by up to 313 mt per year.
They are expected make a “positive impact” to improve the efficiency of bunkering operations at Kaohsiung Port, he notes.
