Incorporating Clean Shipping International


Thursday, October 4, 2018 

Japan Marine United Corporationís (JMU) Tsu shipyard has launched Energy Glory, the 165,000m3 capacity LNGC building for joint NYK and Tokyo LNG Tanker ownership.

The 300m vessel, the third vessel to be jointly owned by the companies, features the self-supporting prismatic-shaped tank (SPB) developed by IHI Corporation and JMU.

The containment tank’s insulating materials suppress the boil-off rate in the cargo tank to 0.08 percent of tank volume per day, the world’s lowest level.

In compliance with environmental regulations for vessel operations along the U.S. coast the Energy Glory will operate a tri-fuel diesel electric propulsion system, configured with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to run on low-sulphur oil, heavy oil, or gas.

The design is in accordance with NYK’s new medium-term management plan “Staying Ahead 2022 with Digitalization and Green,” which looks to deliver a stable supply of LNG as an environment-friendly energy. After delivery the ship will be mainly used over the next 20 years for LNG transportation from the Cove Point LNG project in the United States.
