Five carrier groups, including Japan's NYK and Mitsui (MOL), have collectively invested in four deepsea newbuilds which can use methanol as fuel. MAN B&W will supply the engines for the 49,000 dwt tankers, writes MAN Diesel & Turbo in a statement.
The five partners are Waterfront Shipping Company (WFS), Marinvest/Skagerack Invest (Marinvest), IINO Kaiun Kaisha, Mitsui and NYK Group. The vessels will be delivered in 2019, and in addition to the environmentally friendly methanol (alcohol), the marine engines will also be able to sail on traditional oil, marine diesel or gas oil.
