- Feb 23, 2018-

It is learned that modern tail Pu shipbuilding and Swedish oil tanker Marinvest recently signed a contract to build two 50,000 tonne MR model oil tankers, the new ship is expected to be delivered in 2019. The two product tankers will be rented by Canadian methanol producer Methanex and its subsidiary Waterfront Shipping for a long time.

 

According to sources, the two newbuilding specifications are similar to the 4 + 2 MR model oil tankers marketed by Marinvest at Hyundai Microelectronics in 2013. At the time, the series of tankers were also leased to Methanex at a cost of about $ 44 million each.glenflange

 

It is understood that the vessel is similar to the MR-type product tanker previously delivered and is the world's first methanol-powered carrier. The vessel uses a MAN B & W ME-LGI two-stroke dual-fuel engine that uses methanol, heavy fuel oil, marine diesel or gasoline as fuel. According to Hyundai Murata Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., this methanol carrier can reduce sulfur oxide emissions by 95% and nitrogen oxide emissions by 30% compared to conventional ships that use marine diesel oil. glenflange
