ClassNK grants Approval in Principle for research on an LNG-fuelled 200K DWT bulk carrier design

Classification Society ClassNK an Approval in Principle (AIP) based on its Rule Part GF which adopts IGF Code (regulation for ships using low-flashpoint fuels) to NYK Line and Japan Marine United (JMU) for their joint project on the concept design of an LNG-fueled 200,000 DWT bulk carrier (Newcastlemax).

The design is based on a 200K DWT bulk carrier developed by JMU. Despite its added weight due to the increased amount of equipment such as its LNG-fuelled tank and LNG fuel supply system, it provides more cargo hold capacity.

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.

Newcastlemax bulk carriers are the largest vessels that can be accomodated at the Australian port of Newcastle—the world’s leading port for coal exports. The NYK/JMU concept is one of several LNG-fuelled Newcastlemax bulker designs unveiled recently.
