NYK to order two LNG-fuelled large coal carriers from Oshima Shipbuilding

07 Nov 2022

NYK Line on Wednesday (2 November) said it will order two LNG-fuelled large coal carriers from Oshima Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. 

The firm added the vessels are scheduled to be delivered in 2025.

This ship order is a part of a bulk carrier fleet development aimed at achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the NYK Group’s oceangoing businesses by 2050. 

The two ships will emit approximately no sulphur oxides (SOx), 80% less NOx, and 30% less carbon dioxide (CO2) compared to existing conventional heavy oil-fuelled vessels. Additionally, the vessels will be compliant with the IMO’s NOx (nitrogen oxide) emission regulations (Tier III).*

The company ordered the world’s first LNG-fuelled large coal carrier in 2019 and its first LNG-fuelled capesize bulk carrier in 2021, in addition to four more LNG-fuelled capsize bulk carriers in January 2022.

Going forward, NYK said it will continue with the gradual planned introduction of LNG-fuelled vessels until the realisation of zero-emission vessels that use marine fuels such as hydrogen or ammonia, which would have an even lower environmental impact.

Vessel Specifications:

LOA / Beam: 235m / 38m
DWT: 95,000MT
Shipyard: Oshima Shipbuilding
Delivery: 2025

Note: Figures and schedules are planned approximates.
