Osaka-based engine manufacturer Yanmar Friday received an order for two liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual fuel engines and an accompanying LNG fuel supply system from Keppel Singmarine.
The items will be delivered for installation in January 2019 to support the construction of a LNG-fuelled newbuild bunker tanker owned and operated by Singapore bunker supplier Sinanju Tanker Holdings in a partnership agreement with Mitsui & Co., Ltd. (Asia Pacific).
“When the vessel is delivered in December 2019, it will be Singapore’s first dual-fuel powered bunker tanker running on LNG and marine gas oil,” says Yanmar.
“To help the shipping industry achieve a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, Yanmar will continue to develop ship engines with environmental sustainability in mind and providing optimal solutions to meet the needs of our customers.”
The Yanmar 6EY26DF dual fuel engines used by the Singapore bunker tanker will also be installed on a LNG-powered tugboat operating at Osaka bay.
