RINA and Marine Engineering Services (M.E.S.) signed an agreement to cooperate on chemical tankers concepts that will use alternative fuels.
ES will provide its competence in designing high-tech gas and chemical tankers with new technologies, while RINA will share its knowledge for the energy transition towards the compliance with IMO’s decarbonization goals.
Within the agreement, the two partners will cooperate on three ship designs:
- 13.000 Dwt CMBV (Chemical Tanker & Methanol Bunkering Vessel), a chemical tanker fueled by methanol also able to supply bunkering of methanol fuel to other vessels;
- 13.000 Dwt LNG Dual-Fuel chemical tanker designed as “Ammonia-Ready”, capable of being retrofit as ammonia-fueled ship in the future;
- 13.000 Dwt LNG Dual-Fuel chemical tanker designed as “LPG-Ready”, capable of being retrofit as LPG-fueled ship in the future.
