ClassNK grants AIP to NYK Line and Japan Marine United
(Posted on 19/07/18)
Leading Classification Society ClassNK granted an Approval in Principle (AIP) based on its Rule Part GF which adopts IGF Code (regulation for ships using low-flashpoint fuels) to NYK Line and Japan Marine United (JMU) for their joint project on the concept design of an LNG-fueled 200K DWT bulk carrier.
The design is based on a 200K DWT bulk carrier developed by JMU. Despite its added weight due to the increased amount of equipment such as its LNG-fuelled tank and LNG fuel supply system, it provides more cargo hold capacity. By running on LNG, in addition to reducing NOx, SOx, and PM emissions, this vessel is expected to satisfy Phase 3 (30% less than Phase 0) of the EEDI (Energy Efficient Design Index) defined by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for ship GHG emissions.
Speaking on the occasion, ClassNK Corporate Officer and Director of Technical Solution Department Hayato Suga said: “The design developed by NYK and JMU meets the industry’s demand for an increase in cargo capacity while also being environmentally friendly. As a classification society, we have confirmed the safety of the design and are very happy to be involved with this innovative project.”
