First SOx scrubber-equipped VLCC delivered

The 339.5 m long Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) Tanzawa, the first new NYK-owned vessel to include an SOx scrubber, has been delivered into the NYK fleet. On October 3, 2019, a naming and delivery ceremony was held at the Kure shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation, informed a release.

The new vessel is equipped with a scrubber that is compliant with the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) more stringent SOx emission regulation, which is scheduled to become effective in January 2020.

The ship will be about 23 per cent more energy efficient (reducing CO2 emissions per unit of transport), exceeding the IMO EEDI phase 2 requirements that will become effective in 2020. In addition, a highly corrosion resistance steel has been used in the cargo tank, thus making anti-rust paint unnecessary. The refrigerant used in the onboard refrigerator and air conditioner is also compliant with environmental regulations, thus making the ship a more environment-friendly chemical tanker.

NYK continues to contribute to stable crude oil transportation to meet customers’ demand, and the company is making efforts to contribute to realising a sustainable society through the operation of environment-friendly ships, the release added.
