Kawasaki Heavy Industries has delivered the 84,000 cubic metes capacity liquefied petroleum gas carrier Crystal Oasis for Kumiai Navigation This vessel is a dual-fuel LPG carrier using LPG and low-sulfur fuel oil, and their fourth 84,000 cubic meters LPG carrier adopting a dual-fuel main engine. This LPG carrier operates using both LPG and low-sulfur fuel oil. Use of LPG as fuel greatly reduces emission volumes of sulfur oxides, CO2 and other pollutants compared with use of marine fuel oil. In this way, the new vessel will meet SOx emission standards which were strengthened in January 2020, and EEDI Phase 3 regulations which will further strengthen CO2 emission standards.Length overall - 229.90 metersMolded breadth - 37.20 metersMolded depth - 21.90 metersMolded draft - 11.60 metersSpeed - 17.0 knotsCrew complement - 29Gross tonnage - 49,943 tonnesDeadweight - 55,090 tonnesCargo tank capacity - 84,244 cubic metersMain engine - Kawasaki-MAN B&W 7S60ME-C10.5-LGIP diesel engineThis is the 67th LPG carrier built by the company. In recent years, in order to effectively reduce emissions of greenhouse gases from international shipping, more vessels are adopting liquefied gases as an alternative to heavy fuel oil on a global scale. This very large LPG carrier is powered by LPG, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions and is expected to significantly reduce environmental impact. It is the fruit of the Kawasaki Group’s accumulated knowledge in building LPG and liquefied natural gas carriers, and LNG-fueled vessels.Kawasaki plans to develop and build more LPG-fueled LPG carriers, LPG & NH3 carrier, and other commercial vessels that meet environmental standards, as well as to develop and offer other eco-friendly marine technologies, to contribute to the establishment of a low-carbon society. These products include vessels for transporting liquefied hydrogen, considered to be the next-generation energy source.
