Mitsui E&S Machinery has been awarded the contract to supply three dual-fuel engines capable of operating on methanol for a series of 81,200 dwt bulk carriers slated for construction at Tsuneishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. 

The contract relates to the supply of 3 × MAN B&W 7G50ME-C9.6-LGIM (-Liquid Gas Injection Methanol) main movers for the vessels. Each engine will feature MAN Energy Solutions’ proprietary EGRBP (Exhaust Gas Recirculation ByPass) emissions-reduction technology. 

The series of Kamsarmax vessels will be among the very first methanol-capable bulk carriers in the world and will be fully owned by Lauritzen NexGen Shipping, which J. Lauritzen and Lauritzen Bulkers A/S reportedly will use as a platform for further investments in zero-carbon emission and future-proof assets for the shipping industry.

The vessels have been ordered in cooperation with Cargill, which will operate the vessels for a minimum period of seven years.
