Yokohama-based Japan Marine United Corporation, an integration between Universal Shipbuilding and IHIMU, on Tuesday (26 February) received an order for a bunkering vessel able to deliver both liquefied natural gas (LNG) and traditional marine fuel, it said.
The vessel will be built with capacity of 2,500 m3 for LNG and 1,500 m3 for IMO 2020 compatible marine fuel.
“As a first bunkering ship in Asia that can supply the two fuels, the ship can respond to the regulations widely,” it states.
The development is supported by a July 2018 decision by Sumitomo Corporation, Uyeno Transtech and Yokohama-Kawasaki International Port Corporation (YKIP) to introduce LNG bunkering in Tokyo Bay.
Basic specifications of the bunkering vessel are as follows:
Total Length: Approximately 95.57 m
Width: Approximately 15.8 m
Draft: Approximately 4.4 m
Gross tons: Approximately 4,100 tons
LNG loading capacity: 2,500 m3
Compatible oil loading capacity: 1,500 m3
Port Registered: Yokohama Port
