Deltamarin, EcoLog develop LNG-fueled LCO2 carrier

Finland-based Deltamarin, a unit of China Merchants Group, and Greece-based EcoLog have developed a new LNG-powered LCO2 carrier design.

According to a statement by Deltamarin, the partners have collaborated to design an intra-EU, short-range, low-pressure, shallow-draft LCO2 carrier for the “purpose of tendering at shipyards worldwide”.

During the initial design, various solutions have been studied in order to optimize the vessel for LCO2 transportation.

This includes different configurations of the cargo containment and handling system, considering the effect of the wide variety of CO2 compositions, Deltamarin said.

Also, the design features LNG dual-fuel propulsion, shore power (AMP), and wind assistance to minimize the environmental footprint, it said.

EcoLog, a sister company of Peter Livanos-led LNG shipper GasLog, plans to build and own a fleet of LCO2 carriers to serve the emerging carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (CCUS) sector.

The company’s strategy revolves around connecting hard-to-abate emitters with sequestration sites and re-use facilities, utilizing its midstream infrastructure, including ships and terminals.
