Shuttle tanker company AET has named what it says are two of the world’s first LNG Dual-Fuel Dynamic Positioning Shuttle Tankers (DPSTs) – Eagle Blane and Eagle Balder.
According to AET, the shuttle tankers are the cleanest of their kind ever built and will emit 40-48% less carbon than equivalent vessels built in 2008.
The tankers, AET says, meet the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) target of reducing carbon (CO2) emissions by 40% against 2008 baselines by 2030, and halving CO2 emissions by 2050.
“These LNG Dual-Fuel DPSTs also emit 85% less SOx, 98% less NOx, 98% less particulate matter and 93% less black carbon particulates than DPSTs burning conventional fuel,” AET said.
The sister twin-skeg 123,100dwt shuttle tankers, Eagle Blane and Eagle Balder, were unveiled at a naming ceremony held at the Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) Geoje Shipyard, South Korea on Wednesday.
Powered using liquified natural gas (LNG) as the primary fuel, shuttle tankers will be used by the Norwegian energy company Equinor. The shuttle tanker duo will be on a long-term charter with Equinor and will be used for operations in oilfields on both on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and on the UK Continental Shelf.
