Japanese shipbuilder Japan Marine United Corporation (JMU), the integrated entity of Universal Shipbuilding and IHIMU, has received an order for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual fuel marine environment maintenance vessel from the Kanto Regional Development Bureau of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport in early September, it says.
The diesel fuel and LNG powered vessel will be constructed in accordance with International Regulations on the Safety of Ships Using Gas or Other Low Flash Point Fuels (IGF Code).
It will be the first state-owned LNG fuelled work ship and be engaged in the collection of floating garbage and oil in the marine environment of Tokyo Bay after being commissioned in March 2021.
The vessel will use Yokohama Port as a home port to receive LNG bunker fuel.
“At JMU, we will continue to contribute to the protection of the marine environment and the reduction of the environmental burden by making full use of the experience of building many LNG-related technologies that we have cultivated and workshops such as marine environment maintenance vessels including group companies,” it states.
Sumitomo Corporation, Uyeno Transtech and Yokohama-Kawasaki International Port Corporation (YKIP) are working to introduce LNG bunkering in Tokyo Bay, centred on Yokohama Port.
