        据绿色奖基金会称,德国航运公司 GEFO 拥有的液化天然气双燃料油轮 Tosca 是海运业第一艘获得绿色奖二氧化碳标签的化学品油轮。

        液化天然气双燃料油轮 "Tosca "号获得该认证意味着该船有资格在全球港口获得可持续发展船舶的财政奖励。

        Tosca 是一艘船龄为三年的化学品油轮,载重吨位为 7200 吨,总载货量为 8000 立方米。

        该船于 2021 年 9 月在招商局金陵船厂建造,总长 109.6 米,宽 18.4 米,最大吃水 7.2 米。该船由一台功率为 3,000 千瓦的 MAK 6M34DF 双燃料柴油机提供动力,可同时使用液化天然气和船用柴油。装载系统由 16 个完全独立的不锈钢罐组成。该船的冰级为 1A,并配备了冰上航行设备。

        GEFO 航运集团首席执行官 Sven von Appen 表示:"这一外部验证强调了我们的船队在监管机构迎头赶上的同时,在开发商业上可行的解决方案方面所发挥的先锋作用。“

        von Appen 说:"随着行业能源转型的不断深入,作为先驱者的与众不同将至关重要。这一成就不仅使 Tosca 站在了特种化学品油轮领域的最前沿,也巩固了 Tosca 的先锋地位。该船也是第一艘使用液化天然气的 7000 载重吨级化学品油轮。"

        绿色奖基金会执行董事 Jan Fransen 补充说:"Tosca 的绿色奖认证和绿色奖二氧化碳标签有望进一步激励和支持整个行业的自愿影响,GEFO 船队的所有 18 艘深海船舶都获得了绿色奖认证。”

        GEFO 船队拥有 150 艘船舶(包括内陆和远洋船舶),其中 92 艘获得了绿色奖认证,在减排技术方面进行了大量投资,Tosca 的二氧化碳标签是公司可持续发展努力的一个重要里程碑。据该公司称,由于 "Tosca "号主要由液化天然气提供动力,因此该船的碳排放量始终保持在较低水平。

        GEFO 的其他项目涉及使用绿色燃料,如绿色甲醇、氨或氢,作为内河驳船或深海船舶的替代推进系统,以及作为物流服务提供商,在整个欧洲内河驳船和近海地区运输这些新的替代能源。

        最近,该公司在中国南通翔宇造船厂签订了 10 艘 3850 载重吨的新油轮。该公司的目标是通过逐步用替代燃料取代传统燃料,到 2045 年实现船队的碳中和。

First LNG dual-fuel chemical tanker wins Green Award certification

LNG dual-fuel tanker Tosca, owned by Germany-based shipping company GEFO, is the first chemical tanker in the maritime industry to be awarded the Green Award CO2 label, according to the Green Award Foundation.

The LNG dual fuel tanker Tosca received the certification which means that the vessel is eligible for financial incentives for sustainable ships in ports worldwide.

Tosca is a three-year-old chemical tanker with a deadweight tonnage of 7,200 tonnes and a total cargo capacity of 8,000 cubic meters.

Built in September 2021 at the China Merchant Jinling Shipyard, the vessel has an overall length of 109.6 meters, a width of 18.4 meters and a maximum draft of 7.2 meters. It is powered by a 3,000 kW MAK 6M34DF dual-fuel diesel engine that can run on both LNG and marine diesel. The loading system consists of 16 completely separate stainless steel tanks. The vessel has ice class 1A and is equipped for ice navigation.

“This external validation emphasises the pioneering role of our fleet in developing commercially viable solutions as regulators catch up,” said Sven von Appen, CEO of the GEFO Shipping Group.

“Differentiation as a pioneer will be critical as the energy transition in the industry continues. This achievement not only places Tosca at the forefront of the specialty chemical tanker segment but also cements Tosca’s status as a trailblazer. The vessel was also the first chemical tanker in the 7,000 dwt range to run on LNG,” said von Appen.

“Tosca’s Green Award certification and Green Award CO2 label promises to drive further incentives and support for voluntary impact industry wide,” added Jan Fransen, Executive Director at Green Award Foundation adding that all 18 deep sea vessels in the GEFO fleet have Green Award certification.

With a fleet of 150 vessels (both inland and ocean-going), of which 92 are Green Award certified, GEFO has made significant investments in emission-reducing technologies, and Tosca’s CO2 label is an important milestone in the company’s sustainability efforts. As the Tosca is largely powered by LNG, the ship consistently achieves significantly lower carbon emissions, according to the company.

GEFO’s other projects involve the use of green fuels such as green methanol, ammonia or hydrogen for alternative propulsion systems of inland barges or deep-sea vessels and the role of a logistics service provider to transport these new alternative energy sources within the whole European inland barging and shortsea region.

Recently, the company signed up for ten new 3,850 dwt tankers at Xiangyu shipyard in Nantong, China. The goal is to have a carbon-neutral fleet by 2045 by gradually replacing conventional fuels with alternative fuels.
