Shanghai-based Jiangnan Shipyard, a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), will be jointly developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual-fuelled Newcastlemax 210K bulk carrier design with classification society Lloyd’s Register (LR).
The shipyard received an Approval in Principle (AiP) from LR on Wednesday for its design to use a ‘LNG Dual Fuel Package with Piggybacked Type C Tanks’ (LNG-PTC) especially for bulk carriers.
The LNG-PTC system will feature a dual-fuel main engine (MAN B&W ME-GI or WinGD X-DF), dual-fuel auxiliary engines, fuel gas system (high pressure or lower pressure), cylindrical IMO Type C LNG tank(s) and an LNG related safety system.
The following advantages of the LNG-PTC design are:
“Jiangnan has a rich experience and strong capability to provide LNG-PTC for either new building or retrofitting on bulk carriers as turn-key projects,” said Lin Ou, Chairman of Jiangnan.
“Jiangnan has its own facility and qualified team to integrate the fuel gas system and fabricate Type C tank of the LNG-PTC.
“When considering longer trade voyages, Jiangnan has another two fuel tank systems (Type B and GTT Membrane) as alternative solutions.”
Presenting the AiP, Nick Brown, LR Marine & Offshore Director said: “We are delighted to have worked with Jiangnan on this project.”
“LR provided assistance and support in terms of fuel tank design, analysis of support structure and the LNG fuel system application and checked the design against IGF code, LR Gas Fuelled Rules as well as other relevant applicable standards.”
Jiangnan is currently building LNG-fuelled 22,000 TEU capacity boxships.

‘The MOU will foster innovation in smart and autonomous ship technologies, and support the use of green ammonia as a sustainable fuel to help decarbonise global shipping,’ says the Chief Executive of MPA.
PetroSeraya appoints YTL PowerSeraya veteran See Yoong Hwee to drive its fuel tank leasing operations; together with Rafe Liam as Commercial Manager, they will spearhead the company’s initiatives.
‘This biofuel bunker delivery represents a new chapter for Eng Hua as we are now moving with the times towards the era of decarbonisation,’ Mike Sin, Director at Eng Hua, tells bunkering publication Manifold Times.
MPA has also asked Glencore to improve its internal procedures to ensure that prompt action is taken in future when it becomes aware of, or reasonably suspects, any irregularity in fuel quality, it states.
Dynamic Asset Investments Limited and Goldsland Holdings Co Ltd helped Vermont UM Bunkering maintain a “Cash Float” of about SGD 100,000 to facilitate “buyback” bunker transactions at Singapore port.
