Swedish shipping company Terntank has placed orders for two hybrid tankers, which  run on liquefied biogas (LBG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG),  at China’s AVIC Dingheng Shipbuilding with an option for two more vessels.

The 15,000 dwt new-builds with hybrid battery system and on-shore power are designed by Kongsberg (ex Rolls-Royce) and they will be in operation in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea in 2021.

The close cooperation with the customers and with the crew at shore and onboard, has made it possible to further develop the environmentally friendly supply chains and to take the next steps towards carbon-neutral shipping. Doing business in a sustainable way and cutting down emissions are the core values for Terntank and its customers.

With these AVIC Series  2.0 vessels Terntank continues its journey as the forerunner in environmentally efficient and safe shipping. The protection of the marine environment and maritime safety have always been of top priority for Terntank, a family owned company having its roots on the island of Donsö.

Terntank was the first shipowner to order LNG powered product tankers in 2013.

Vessels will be developed from experience of the previous AVIC SERIES with many additional innovative improvements to reduce environmental impacts. Terntank’s new vessels will significantly reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impacts in the supply chain with LBG/LNG powered engines, hybrid battery systems and on-shore power.

Terntank strongly supports the greenhouse gas reduction targets of the maritime sector. The next generation LBG/LNG powered product tankers will give a strong lead in reaching the greenhouse gas reduction goals of the International Maritime Organization.

The new-builds are capable to operate with liquefied biogas (LBG). The vessels will be equipped with new electric power supply system including battery pack, shore-power connection and bow thruster drive (hybrid). Energy consumption and emissions? are further reduced with the latest digital solutions for operational optimization.
