Asahi Tanker confirms orders for electric-powered bunker tankers

Asahi Tanker confirms orders for electric-powered bunker tankers
Japanese owner Asahi Tanker has confirmed orders at two local yards to build the world’s first two zero-emissions electric bunker tankers.

Asahi has chosen Koa Sangyou and Imura Zosen to build one of the vessels each, with delivery scheduled in March 2022 and March 2023.

The tankers will be powered by large-capacity lithium ion batteries, and they will enter service in Tokyo Bay as bunker vessels.

They will also adopt digitalisation, automation and Internet of Things (IoT) technology to reduce crew workload and improve operational efficiency.

Asahi Tanker is a unit of MOL and currently owns a fleet of 25 tankers.
