Eniram, a Wärtsilä company, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Athens-based Arista Shipping to participate in the Project Forward initiative.

The project has developed a dry bulk carrier vessel based on LNG fuelled propulsion, Wärtsilä said in a statement, adding that Eniram’s contribution will be to assist in the development of monitoring and optimization tools.

The vessel design will enable compliance with all known, applicable, and anticipated regulations proposed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). These include the Energy Efficiency Design Index 2025, SOx post-2020, and NOx Tier III without any after treatment.

Wärtsilä is also a part of the project team as the propulsion design concept is to be based on an arrangement featuring just two Wärtsilä 31DF dual-fuel engines without additional gensets.

Other parties involved include Finnish ship designer Deltamarin, the Houston-based classification society American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), and GTT, the French LNG membrane containment system designer.

Arista Shipping has signed a letter of intent with Yangzijiang Shipbuilding (YZJ) to build a series of up to 20 bulk carriers to the new design.
