According to the shipbuilder, the intelligent control by exhaust recycling (iCER) system installed onboard the ship could reduce methane slip in gas mode by 50% and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by more than 28%. The ship is specially equipped with a huge bow windshield, which could save 2%-4% of fuel consumption during actual operation.

Additionally, an energy-saving device is installed at the stern of the ship, that is expected to improve propeller propulsion efficiency and reduce energy consumption by about 1,5%.

To remind, the ship was launched in September last year.
