Terntank’s first hybrid tanker arrives in Gothenburg

Terntank’s first LNG-powered hybrid tanker, Tern Island, has arrived in the Swedish port of Gothenburg after a long trip from China.

The 15,000-dwt vessel left for Europe in December after the naming ceremony at China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Yangzhou.

According to a Terntank statement, it arrived in Gothenburg on Thursday, February 10, successfully performing “zero emissions” port operations.

The new hybrid tanker with a capacity of 16,500 cbm in 14 epoxy coated tanks will sail on LNG or LBG.

Tern Island also features new electric power supply hybrid system, including a battery pack, on-shore power supply and a DC-Link system which can reduce its auxiliary energy consumption during port operations by 99 percent, Terntank claims.

Terntank said it developed the shore connections together with the Port of Gothenburg, making it the “first port in the world that can connect tankers to electricity.”

The Swedish owner has two sister vessels on order at Jinling and they will both serve NEOT in the Baltic Sea region as part of a charter deal revealed in 2020.

The two hybrid newbuilds are an upgraded version of Terntank’s AVIC series.

Kongsberg’s Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine designed the ships in collaboration with Terntank.
