        美国船东美森轮船公司(Matson)与中国造船企业中远海运(COSCO Shipping Shipyard)南通船厂签订合同,为2019年建造的集装箱船“Kaimana Hila”号安装液化天然气(LNG)双燃料供气系统。

        今年2月2日,这艘商船(MV)“Kaimana Hila”号LNG系统改造项目的签约仪式在南通举行。

        随着船东们都在寻找能够满足碳强度指标(CII)和现有船舶能效指数(EEXI)等规定的方法,该船是美森轮船公司(Matson)为现有船舶改装双燃料液化天然气(LNG)动力系统的第三艘船。

        这艘3,600 TEU集装箱船将在主机和四台辅机配备液化天然气(LNG)双燃料供气和控制系统。

        该船的发动机将从“MAN B&W S90ME-C10.5”型改装为可使用液化天然气(LNG)的“ME-GI”型双燃料发动机。根据2022年6月签订的合同,曼恩能源解决方案公司(MAN Energy Solutions)售后服务部门MAN PrimeServ将负责此次船舶系统改造工作。

        这一环保举措的关键是安装三个1,350立方米的液化天然气(LNG)燃料罐,同时对相关系统功能进行全面升级,包括灭火、通风、照明、通信和监控设备。

        此举顺应了将液化天然气(LNG)作为更清洁替代燃料的行业大趋势,旨在减少碳排放,提高全球航运业的环境可持续性。

        南通中远海运公司(COSCO Shipping Nantong)表示,此次船舶改装是该公司承接的第四个双燃料改造项目。

        美森轮船公司(Matson)进行船舶改造的决定符合其可持续发展目标,即到2030年实现“Scope 1”标准温室气体排放减少 40%,到2050年实现“Scope 1”标准温室气体净零排放。

Matson inks Kaimana Hila LNG retrofit deal with COSCO Shipping Nantong

U.S. shipowner Matson has inked a contract with Chinese shipbuilder COSCO Shipping Shipyard (Nantong) for the integration of an LNG dual-fuel gas supply system into the 2019-built container ship Kaimana Hila.

The contract signing ceremony for MV Kaimana Hila LNG retrofit project was held in Nantong on February 2. 

The vessel will be the third vessel Matson is retrofitting with dual-fuel LNG capability as shipowners look at ways of meeting regulations such as CII and EEXI for their existing vessels.

The 3,600 TEU containership will be equipped with LNG dual-fuel gas supply and control systems for both the main engine and four auxiliary engines.

The ship’s engine will be converted from an MAN B&W S90ME-C10.5 unit to a dual-fuel ME-GI unit capable of running on LNG. The retrofit will be executed by MAN PrimeServ, the after-sales division of MAN Energy Solutions, in accordance with a contract signed in June 2022.

Critical to this green initiative is the installation of three 1,350 cubic meter LNG fuel tanks, accompanied by a comprehensive upgrade of system-related features, including fire extinguishing, ventilation, lighting, communications, and monitoring equipment.

This move aligns with the broader industry trend of embracing LNG as a cleaner alternative fuel, aiming to reduce carbon emissions and enhance environmental sustainability in global shipping.

The retrofit initiative stands as the fourth dual-duty project undertaken by COSCO Shipping Nantong, the shipyard said.

Matson’s decision to pursue the retrofit is aligned with the company’s corporate sustainability goals, aiming to achieve a 40% reduction in Scope 1 greenhouse gas fleet emissions by 2030 and net-zero Scope 1 GHG emissions by 2050.
