Bureau Veritas (BV) has delivered an Approval in Principle (AiP) to DSME for its design and development of an 86K Ammonia (NH3) carrier with NH3 propulsion.
he main characteristics and dimensions of the vessel are approximately 230m in overall length, 36.6m in breadth, and a depth of 22.5m. It will be equipped with four (4) prismatic-type cargo tanks with a total capacity of approximately 86,000 cubic meters.
Jae Hyuk Woo, Senior Executive Vice President and Shipyard General Manager of DSME, said on the occasion:
This project is significant in that two companies jointly completed the conceptual design of the very large ammonia carrier with an ammonia fuelled propulsion system and secured technological competitiveness for the eco-friendly vessel by reviewing the safety and compliance of the design
Recently, Bureau Veritas (BV) launched a detailed outlook on future maritime fuels in a new white paper, which calls for a “well-to-wake” (WtW) approach to assessing the climate impact and sustainability of alternative fuels.
The white paper details alternative fuels for the shipping industry, considering technological maturity, availability, safety, emissions and regulations.
Adopting a well-to-wake approach in its evaluations, the analysis covers the industry’s changing needs resulting from its energy transition and decarbonization ambitions.
