UASC names LNG-ready ultra-large containership

United Arab Shipping Company said it has named its eco-efficient container vessel at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries, Mokpo South Korea.

M.V. Barzan is a part of the industry’s first LNG-ready ultra-large container vessel fleet, the company said in a statement.

With a loading capacity of 18,800 TEU, the DNV GL classed vessel M.V. Barzan is first in a new class of ultra-large container vessels that will be the largest in UASC’s fleet to date boasting increased fuel and energy efficiency, due to optimized vessel design and an array of propulsion and equipment efficiency technologies. Preliminary calculations indicate an EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) value that is close to 50% below the 2025 limit set by IMO.

The M.V. Barzan has a CO2 output per TEU that is more than 60% below a 13,500 TEU vessels delivered just three years ago.

UASC’s eleven newbuild 15,000 TEU and six 18,800 TEU vessels are scheduled to be fully delivered by 2016. This year, UASC will receive a total of 10 new vessels.

Technologies and solutions deployed on the M.V. Barzan and all 18,800 TEU vessels include shore-to-ship power supply solution for zero emissions at berth and energy efficient integrated system to monitor and optimize propulsion systems, machinery operations and navigation decision-making amongst others.
