Yangshan Green Ship of the Year

Yangshan Green Ship of the Year
SINGAPORE's APL, a part of the global shipping and logistics group NOL, has become the first container shipping line to receive the Green Ship of the Year award launched at the 2013 International Maritime Awards.

The event organised by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore lauded the "outstanding energy efficiency and performance" of the 10,700-TEU APL Yangshan that is deployed on the Asia-Europe trade and was built in 2012, a company statement said.

The new award category recognises Singapore-flagged vessels that adopt energy-efficient ship designs to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, and the winner is selected based on its energy efficiency performance.

"We are very honoured to be presented the award, and to be accorded strong industry recognition of the environmental benchmark that APL has set," said company president Kenneth Glenn in a statement. 

"In an industry where bunker fuel is a big part of operational costs, and at a time when fuel costs are expected to remain high, it is imperative that we continue with our efforts to enhance the energy efficiency of our ships in order to remain competitive while providing our customers with quality service." 

The award-winning containership is part of the company's fleet renewal programme that aims to inject technologically-advanced, fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly tonnage into its global container fleet. The vessel has an Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) that is 33 per cent better than the International Maritime Organisation's EEDI reference line for this type and size of ship. 

The key environmental features of the APL Yangshan include an electronically-controlled main engine that consumes less fuel compared to conventional engines for a corresponding load and helps lower emissions. The vessel is cold-iron capable, enabling it to connect to shore power while at berth in order to reduce emissions. It is also equipped with an advanced ballast water treatment system to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species.
