Spanish bunker service provider Mureloil SAU on Wednesday (28 July) said it has signed an agreement with Murueta Shipyard (Bilbao) for the construction of its first hybrid bunker tanker.
The MURELOIL 7500 HT project will be classed by Bureau Veritas with the maximum grade of “green” class notations. Including Cleanship Super, Electric Hybrid (PM) and oil recovery.
MURELOIL 7500 HT features a combination of electric diesel and hybrid propulsion; this technology allows the goal of zero emissions at port, reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases during navigation in more than 30%, representing the first bunker vessel built developing this combination propulsion thanks to the storing energy system by the use of batteries.
The hybrid bunker tanker will have a total capacity up to 7500 m3, divided in 12+2 tanks with four parcels for segregated cargo. The vessel will be Inert Gas ready, which makes the ship optimum for being used in product transport, in addition to maximum discharge rate of 1,100m3/h.
Engineering and design, since the early stage to the entry into service, is developed by the technical department of Murueta Shipyard and Mureloil in close collaboration.
The process of designing and building will take two years; the ship will be in service by Q1 of 2022.
