A steel cutting ceremony was held on March 4  for Teekay Offshore’s fourth and final LNG-powered E-Shuttle tanker at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in South Korea.

The vessel, which will be named “Current Spirit”, is now officially in production.

To remind, work on the first out of the four LNG-powered tankers started in July last year.

The 130,000 dwt vessels will operate on both liquefied natural gas as the primary fuel, and a mixture of LNG and recovered volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as secondary fuel.

The power distribution system is part of Wärtsilä’s Low Loss Hybrid (LLH) system, using batteries to leverage more fuel savings, peak load shaving and added overall system redundancy.

According to Teekay, the annual emission reduction potential is estimated at up to 42%, with fuel consumption reduced by up to 22% compared to traditional shuttle tankers.

The four vessels will be operating in the North Sea and are expected to be delivered from the yard in from October 2019 through to 2020.
