LR has granted Approval in Principle (AiP) to DSIC for the 23,000 teu design a first of its kind in China.
LR facilitated hazard identification (HAZID) workshops to determine potential hazards throughout the design phase and provided technical guidance regarding the ship’s design and the provision of technical materials.
Yang Zhizhong, President of Dalian Shipbuilding Industry, commented during the ceremony: “DSIC has developed the concept design of the zero-carbon emission ULCV cooperating with MAN Energy Solution and Lloyd's Register. The "C-FUTURE" solution is another pioneering initiative of DSIC on the development of green ships and clean energy applications.”
Ammonia along with alcohol and biomenthane were identified as the best bets for zero emission fuels in a recent study by LR and Maersk.
Mark Darley, LR North Asia president, said: “The global shipping community is facing the challenges associated with the IMO’s GHG ambitions, this is the first step in exploring and testing low carbon alternatives such as ammonia. We look forward to working closely with the key stakeholders on this project which aims to bring zero-carbon advancements
