The 15 000 dwt newbuild vessels are designed by Kongsberg, and will operate in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea in 2021.
According to the statement, these latest vessels will be developed using experience from the previous AVIC SERIES, with a number of additional innovative improvements to reduce the environmental impact. Terntank claims that its 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 claims the newbuilds are capable of operating on LBG, and will be equipped with a new electric power supply system, including a battery pack, shore-power connection and bow thruster drive (hybrid). Energy consumption and emissions are further reduced using the latest digital solutions for operational optimisation.
