New methanol powered tanker to use 12,500 tons of methanol per year

MDN İstanbul

Steel cutting began in China for the first of three new methanol-fueled tankers being built for the joint venture between Swedish Stena Bulk and the Swiss-based Proman Shipping. The 49,900 dwt IMOIIMeMAX vessel, which is scheduled for delivery in early 2022 is being built at the Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) in China.

According to the companies, the Stena Pro Patria, along with her sister ship the Stena Pro Mare which will begin construction shortly, will use approximately 12,500 tons of methanol as fuel per year, which will significantly reduce the volume of carbon and greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the vessel’s commercial operations, especially compared to the use of conventional marine fuels. They believe that these vessels will set a new benchmark for mid-range (MR) tanker sustainability.

It will also benefit from several design and technical improvements to optimize energy and fuel efficiency. Additionally, the vessel’s latest generation MAN dual-fuel engines will also feature revolutionary new water and fuel emulsion technologies to significantly reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions without the need for catalytic conversion technology. The vessels will also be equipped with the latest energy efficiency technology, including continually controlled combustion, optimized tuning, redesigned and aerodynamic hull lines, and an energy shaft generator, reducing fuel consumption and helping to meet strict emissions criteria.
