On 3rd Jul. 2015, the communication conference of “Offshore Petroleum 525” was successfully held in Jiangsu Zhenjiang Shipyard.
It marks that the first pure LNG power Azimuthing harbor tug in Asia independently developed by Shanghai Bestway is close to delivery. In the communication conference, the R&D team from Shanghai Bestway carried out a presentation of the technical characteristics of “Offshore Petroleum 525”. Zhenjiang Shipyard introduced the building progress of this tug, while Rolls & Royce interpreted its LNG power engine.
“Offshore Petroleum 525” is a kind of worldwide advanced pure LNG power multi-purpose Azimuthing harbor tug independently developed and designed by Shanghai Bestway Marine Engineering Design Co., Ltd, while the client is CNOOC Energy Technology & Services-Oil Production Services Co., Ltd. This tug has the overall length of 40.8 m, breadth of 11.6m and molded depth of 5.5m, with a design draft of 4.1m. It is equipped with a complete LNG fuel storage & supply system consist of two 2430KW LNG power engines and two 30 m³ LNG fuel tanks. Its design and construction meets all the latest related rules of CCS (including other Classification Societies and international organizations), law and stipulations of China Government.
Catering to the global trend of energy saving and emission reduction, “Offshore Petroleum 525”is the first pure LNG power Azimuthing harbor tug suitable to the marine environment. The selected LNG power engine realizes 100% substitution of fuel oil with the maximum power of 2430KW. By utilizing clean energy as power fuel, the emission reduces 25% of carbon dioxide, 90% of nitrogen oxide. In addition, there is no emission of SOx, PM 2.5, oil sewage and sanitary waste. In comparison with diesel power ships, this tug is clean energy power ship with advantage of higher performance, environmental-friendly and zero emission of hazardous material, meanwhile, it saves 20%-30% of fuel cost. Its successful construction starts a new page of green energy utilization in marine vessels in China.
“Offshore Petroleum 525”is further developed based on the 6500HP Duel Fuel Azimuthing Harbor Tug built in CSSC Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. As environmental friendly high-tech ship, it fills up the blank in domestic design and building of such ship type. In the worldwide, it ranks into the leading high-tech product with big development prospects.
