Oil products transportation firm Asahi Tanker Co. Ltd, and shipbroking agent Exeno-Yamamizu Corporation Tokyo has jointly developed a new domestic bunker tanker design which incorporates zero emission electric propulsion.
“Commercial model development of ‘e5’ design is underway for all bunker supply vessels trading in Tokyo Bay,” says Asahi Tanker.
“The target of the first vessel launching is set for quarter four 2020. The project is also working for creating ‘e5’ coastal vessels which would require longer cruising range.”
The ‘e5’ concept creates solutions to issues such as shortage of crews, vessel demand balance and environmental regulation, it adds.
ClassNK has been appointed to offer technical advice on the ship’s design and electric propulsion.
