CMI Yangzhou Jinling yard begins the construction of Terntank’s second wind/methanol tanker

On November 15, China Merchants Industry Yangzhou Jinling Shipyard(CMI Yangzhou Jinling yard) started the construction of Terntank’s second of three new wind and methanol-powered 15,000 dwt hybrid tankers.

The series of vessels have an overall length of 147 meters, a beam of 22 meters, a service speed of 14.5 knots, an endurance of 6,600 nautical miles, and are classed by BV. Designed by Kongsberg, the new ship can run on diesel and biofuels and is equipped with a hybrid battery system and shore power system.

The vessel will operate with methanol engines, wind-assisted propulsion, a hybrid battery system and shore power to reduce carbon emissions, and is a wind-assisted chemical tanker that can operate on MGO/biofuels and methanol, a new type of vessel that combines a number of energy-saving and clean technologies.

Wind-assisted propulsion is expected to reduce emissions by a further 8 percent, in addition to the 40 percent reduction in CO2 emissions from the new vessel. The vessel’s Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for the ship meets Stage III requirements, and it can also be converted to methanol fuel in the future. Due to the low carbon and decarbonization potential of methanol, the ship’s energy efficiency index EEDI is effectively designed to be in the range of 16-40%, meeting the requirements of Stage III by 2025.
