25 Apr 2022

Japan’s Asahi Tanker Co., Ltd. on Thursday (14 April) said Asahi, the world’s first full electric bunker tanker, has received electricity from a power supply station located at Kawasaki Port.

The construction of the power supply station at Kawasaki Port was recently completed; moving forward, the facility will supply electricity to the EV tanker. This ship is an electric propulsion tanker powered by a large-capacity lithium-ion battery planned by e5 Lab Co., Ltd.

The electricity supplied to the EV tanker will be 100% renewable energy-derived electricity enabling CO2 emissions reductions of approximately 400 mt per year, equivalent to the annual power consumption of about 300 ordinary households, says Asahi Tanker Co., Ltd.
