“K” LINE to procure LNG-fueled car carriers

Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” LINE) has decided to procure eight 7,000 units class car carriers fueled by LNG by FY2023 to FY2025, following the first LNG-fueled vessel, “Century Highway Green” which was delivered on March 12, 2021.

“K” Line has made an agreement to order the new next-generation of environmentally friendly car carriers from Nihon Shipyard Co.,  Shin Kurushima Dockyard Co., and China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing) Co., Ltd, two vessels in each of three shipyards.

Next-generation of environmentally friendly vessels are expected to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is a greenhouse gas (GHG), by 25% to 30%, emissions of sulfur oxides (SOx), which cause air pollution, by almost 100%, and emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) by 80% to 90% with use of LNG fuel and EGR, compared to conventional vessels using heavy fuel oil.

In “K” LINE Environmental Vision 2050, the company set the 2030 interim target of improving CO2 emission efficiency by 50% over 2008, surpassing the IMO target of 40% improvement. We are planning to substitute LNG fuel and other new fuels for conventional heavy fuel oil to achieve the targets set forth.

In accordance with “K” LINE Environmental Vision 2050, the company will flexibly and proactively listen to customer demands including environmental issues and find the best solution to contribute to the sustainable development of the society

Sustainability and green initiatives have always been laudable objectives, with mission statements around the world confirming commitments to lower emissions and energy consumption, and increase recyclability, to name a few.
Maintenance and Reliability: Prevent unplanned shutdowns for LNG liquefaction facilities
-Peter Zhang
Although an unplanned shutdown is an integrated part of the operational and safety management system of an operating plant, unplanned shutdowns for a modern LNG liquefaction operating facility often become some of the costliest events for the facility owner.
Regional Focus: Balancing Africa’s world-class LNG projects and the environment

The construction of world-scale natural gas processing plants by three of Africa’s top natural gas producers has attracted scrutiny, despite efforts to commercialize the continent’s hydrocarbon resources and expand energy supply on the continent.


Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants

Register Now

Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
