COSCO SHIPPING inks methanol fuel project for four containerships

COSCO SHIPPING Heavy Industry Technology Signs Methanol Fuel Supply System Project for Four Container Ships

COSCO SHIPPING Heavy Industry Technology (Weihai) has signed an order for methanol fuel supply system for four 16,000 TEU containerships with COSCO SHIPPING Heavy Industry (Yangzhou).

As a total solution covers the entire refuelling process, it is the first large project of methanol fuel supply for both the main and auxiliary engines of ships in China.

The methanol fuel supply system, also called “Marine Shield” (Haidun), adopts dual-core redundancy and PID closed-loop control to maintain the stability and reliability of the equipment.

The double filter design also ensures the engine fuel supply’s reliability, according to COSCO SHIPPING.

In line with the characteristics of 16,000 TEU large containerships, COSCO SHIPPING tailored this technical solution featuring decentralised module control and operation parameter integration monitoring.

This was done to further improve the safety and reliability of methanol refuelling, lightering, and supply, which gained the recognition of ship owners.

This comes less than a month after the German government ratified its decision to grant approval for the acquisition of a 24.9 per cent minority stake in Container Terminal Tollerort (CTT) by COSCO SHIPPING Ports Limited (CSPL).

Meanwhile, last month COSCO SHIPPING Heavy Industry (Yangzhou) started works on its second 700 TEU electric containership (N998), owned by COSCO SHIPPING Development.
