On July 31 2020, the LNG fueled car carrier which is under construction at Tadotsu Shipyard Co.Ltd. (Imabari Shipbuilding Group) was launched safely.
Construction is currently ongoing with estimated delivery within the 2020 fiscal year.
The main engine on this vessel is a dual-fuel diesel engine ME-GI with an exhaust gas recirculation system (EGR) to apply with NOx Tier III. Regulation of NOx Tier III requires 80% reduction of NOx against that of Tier I.
Auxiliary engines are also dual-fuel diesel engines that conform to NOx Tier III in gas mode.
The auxiliary engine with a Selective Catalytic Reduction System (SCR) is designed to meet NOx tier III requirements even in diesel mode, offering flexibility in the choice of fuel.
