ClassNK grants AiP on capesize bulker design

Published by , Editorial Assistant
Dry Bulk,


<p>ClassNK has granted an Approval in Principle (AiP) to NS United Kaiun Kaisha, Ltd. and Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. for their joint project on the concept design of an LNG-fuelled capesize bulker. The AiP is based on the company’s Rule Part GF, which adopts IGF Code (regulation for ships using low flashpoint fuels).</p>

The main features of the design announced by Imabari Shipbuilding are as follows.

“By installing two Type C LNG tanks at the stern, which are considered to be cost competitive and are comparatively easy to install, it is possible to build an LNG-fuelled vessel without significant changes to the conventional vessel’s basic design.

“The design adopts a low pressure dual fuel engine for the main engine, which enables the use of boil-off gas that has naturally vaporised from the LNG tanks in the main engine without any waste, thereby reducing the burden on the environment and lowering running costs.

“This basic design can achieve CO2 emission volumes that are 30% less than the reference line as required under EEDI Phase 3 by the IMO.”
