        9月2日,日本造船厂川崎重工业株式会社( Kawasaki Heavy Industries,简称KHI)为一艘新型超大气体运输船(very large gas carrier,简称VLGC)举行了命名仪式,这艘船将由航运公司日本邮船株式会社(Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha,简称NYK)租给液化石油气(liquefied petroleum gas,简称LPG)贸易与进口商Astomos Energy。
 
        这艘“Lupinus Planet”号将成为日本邮船株式会社(NYK)第一艘液化石油气(LPG)双燃料超大气体运输船(VLGC)。
 
        该船是日本邮船株式会社(NYK)去年在川崎重工业株式会社(KHI) Sakaide造船厂所订购的两艘同型船舶之一。 
 
        这艘新造船油箱容量约为86,500立方米,船长229米,宽37.2米。
 
        与配备燃油发动机的传统超大气体运输船(VLGC)相比,当船舶使用液化石油气(LPG)作为燃料时,这艘双燃料超大气体运输船(VLGC)所排放废气中的氧化硫(sulfur oxide,简称SOx)含量至少减少85%,二氧化碳(carbon dioxide,简称CO2)含量至少减少15%。 
 
        日本邮船株式会社(NYK)表示,其旨在进一步加强与Astomos Energy公司的长期合作关系,同时促进环保型船队的发展,为低碳供应链做出贡献。

NYK: First dual-fuel VLGC for Astomos named at KHI
 
On 2 September, Japanese shipbuilder Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) held a naming ceremony for a new very large gas carrier (VLGC) that the shipping company NYK will charter to LPG trader and importer Astomos Energy Corporation.
 
The ship, named Lupinus Planet, will be NYK‘s first liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) dual-fuel VLGC. 
 
It is one of two identical units NYK ordered at the KHI Sakaide Works last year.
 
With a tank capacity of about 86,500 cubic metres, the newbuild features a length of 229 metres and a breadth of 37.2 metres.
 
When LPG is used as fuel, exhaust gas from the ordered VLGC will contain at least 85% less sulfur oxide (SOx) and 15% less carbon dioxide (CO2) compared to conventional VLGCs equipped with fuel-oil engines. 
 
NYK said it aims to further strengthen its longstanding relationship with Astomos Energy and promote the development of an eco-friendly fleet to contribute to a low-carbon supply chain.
