The first order for an onboard carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) device developed by China’s Shanghai Marine Diesel Engine Research Institute (SMDERI) in connection with a newbuilding project has been placed.

The order was placed in connection with an order for 12 x 82,000 dwt Kamsarmax at Jiangsu New Hantong Ship Heavy Industry. The vessels’ design is understood to be based on SDARI’s Dolphin 82 design. The ships are reported to be scheduled for delivery between the end of 2024 and 2025. Local media reports indicate that that the vessels will be powered by MAN B&W 6G50ME-C9.6 main movers. 

The installation of the onboard CCUS system will represent the first reference of the system on board a newbuilding. The SMDERI CCUS system was awarded an Approval in Principle (AiP) from China Classification Society’s Shanghai branch in February 2022.
