Auramarine has secured an order to supply methanol fuel supply systems for three 15,000 DWT hybrid tankers for Terntank.
s Auramarine informs, the ships are built at China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Yangzhou), with the first vessel of the series to be delivered in March 2025. Auramarine’s system deliveries are scheduled between second half of 2024 and first half of 2025.
Each shipset comprises the methanol fuel system including the methanol supply unit (LFSS), bunker and transfer systems, control and monitoring system and the important safety system.
The vessels are tailor made to optimally transport bio feedstocks to Terntank’s customer’s refineries. The new Hybrid Solution Plus series vessels will significantly reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impacts with methanol-powered engines, wind-assisted propulsion, hybrid battery system, and on-shore power.
Auramarine’s expertise on methanol systems is one of the key elements in enabling the vessels to reach their full decarbonisation potential, said Claes Möller, CEO at Tärntank Ship Management.
We recognise that the industry is experiencing rapid change and we are committed to supporting our clients through this process on their decarbonisation journey and we are delighted that Terntank has selected us to supply the methanol systems for these progressive vessels
