03 Nov 2022

China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) on Tuesday (1 November) said its subsidiary has recently been awarded an Approval-in-Principle (AiP) from classification society RINA for a 50,000 dwt ammonia-fuelled MR oil/chemical tanker.

The vessel design was independently developed by CSSC subsidiary Shanghai Merchant Ship Design And Research Institute (SDARI).

This came following SDARI’s success in its research and development of an ammonia-fuelled  7,000 unit capacity car carrier (PCTC).

CSSC said obtaining the AiP marked the latest achievement of the institute in the green, environmental protection and zero-carbon fields. 

“It is of great significance to the innovation and development of zero-carbon ships in China’s shipbuilding industry,” it said.
