Kawasaki Heavy Industries has delivered the 84,000 cuic meters capacity liquefied petroleum gas carrier LUPINUS PLANET for Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha. This is the 68th LPG carrier built by the company. This vessel is a dual-fuel LPG carrier using LPG and low-sulfur fuel oil, and their fifth 84,000 m3 LPG carrier adopting a dual-fuel main engine.Length overall - 229.90 metersMolded breadth - 37.20 metersMolded depth - 21.90 metersMolded draft - 11.60 metersSpeed - Approximately 17.0 knotCrew complement - 30Gross tonnage - 49,943 tonnesDeadweight - 55,091 tonnesCargo tank capacity - 84,172 cubic metersMain engine -One set of Kawasaki-MAN B&W 7S60ME-C10.5-LGIP diesel engineClassification - Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK)/country of registration - PanamaDelivery date - September 22, 2022This LPG carrier operates using both LPG and low-sulfur fuel oil. Use of LPG as fuel greatly reduces emission volumes of sulfur oxides (SOx), CO2 and other pollutants compared with use of marine fuel oil. In this way, the new vessel will meet SOx emission standards*1 which were strengthened in January 2020, and EEDI*2 Phase 3 regulations which will further strengthen CO2 emission standards.In order to satisfy restrictions on NOx TierⅢ controls*3 emissions which is implemented by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the main engine and generator are equipped with a Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) System, An exhaust gas purification system to reduce NOx, which allows the ship to navigate in Emission Control Area (ECA).Installation of LPG fuel tanks on the ship's upper deck makes it possible to load fuel-use LPG separate from the ship's cargo LPG. Moreover, a piping system connecting the LPG fuel tanks and LPG cargo tanks enables transferring of extra LPG to the LPG fuel tanks if necessary.This vessel adopts the Kawasaki rudder bulb system with fins (RBS-F) and the semi-duct system with contra fins (SDS-F) which contribute to reducing fuel consumption.
