Recently, Japan’s Tsuneishi Shipbuilding was contracted to provide two 81,200 dwt methanol dual-fuel Kamsarmax dry bulk newbuilds for Greek shipowner Diana Shipping.
The vessels will feature a MITSUI-MAN B&W 6G80ME-C10.5- LGIM-EGRTC, a dual-fuel methanol and heavy oil main engine manufactured by MITSUI E&S Co., which will be the first in Japan to be installed on a ship.
The design of the ships is based on the concept of a final solution for the zero CO₂ emission vessel using green methanol. Therefore, not only the main engine but also all on-board generators, HiMSEN engine (8H32DF-LM) which will be supplied by HD Hyundai, can be methanol-fuelled.
This can contribute to carbon neutrality, said the shipbuilder. The containerships will have equipment to receive large-capacity alternative maritime power supply and zero CO₂ emissions can be achieved by shutting down the generators while anchoring.
