Classification society ClassNK granted an approval in principle to NYK Line and Japan Marine United for their joint project on the concept design of an LNG-fueled bulk carrier.

The design is based on a 200K DWT bulk carrier developed by Japan Marine United.

Despite its added weight due to the increased amount of equipment such as its LNG-fuelled tank and LNG fuel supply system, the design provides more cargo hold capacity, according to a ClassNK statement.

By running on LNG, in addition to reducing NOx, SOx, and PM emissions, this vessel is expected to satisfy Phase 3 (30% less than Phase 0) of the EEDI (Energy Efficient Design Index) defined by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for ship GHG emissions, the statement said.
