Singapore-flagged newbuild methanol-fuelled chemical tanker “Grouse Sun” delivered

21 Apr 2022

The methanol-fuelled chemical tanker Grouse Sun, owned by NYK Bulkship (Asia) Pte. Ltd., an NYK Group company based in Singapore, was delivered on Tuesday (April 19). 

The vessel was built at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in Korea.

Grouse Sun has been equipped with a dual-fuel engine that can use not only heavy fuel oil but also methanol as a bunker fuel. 

Furthermore, when navigating using methanol as a marine fuel, the vessel has a new technology that suppresses the production of NOx (nitrogen oxides) by adding water to methanol to lower its temperature during combustion. 

As a result, the vessel can comply with the IMO’s stringent Tier III NOx emission standard and contribute to environment-friendly transportation without the need for an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) device.

Under the management of NYK Shipmanagement Pte. Ltd., an NYK Group company, the vessel will be engaged in a long-term charter contract with Waterfront Shipping Limited, which is a subsidiary company of Methanex Corporation, the world’s largest methanol producer.

This is the third fuelled chemical tanker, owned by NYK Bulkship (Asia) Pte. Ltd., that was delivered.
