First newbuilding order for SMDERI onboard CCUS unit
19th April 2023
The first order for an onboard carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) device developed by China’s Shanghai Marine Diesel Engine Research Institute (SMDERI) in connection with a newbuilding project has been placed.
The order was placed in for 12 Kamsarmax bulk carriers at Jiangsu New Hantong Ship Heavy Industry, which will carry China’s first new-building carbon capture system pilot project. At least one of these ships will be equipped with a CCUS device independently developed by CSSC SMDERI.
As per the local media report the design of these vessels will be based on SDARI’s Dolphin 82 design, powered by MAN-B&W 6G50ME-C9.6 main engine, which meets the requirements of IMO Tier III and EEDI Phase III. The ships are reported to be scheduled for delivery between the end of 2024 and 2025.
