DNV of Norway posted a video of the concept ship developed by Oshima and DNV.
It’s an energy efficient open-hatch bulk carrier powered by liquefied natural gas.
The ECO-Ship is an energy-efficient and cost-effective concept design developed to help owners and operators improve commercial performance while lowering fuel costs.
The LNG-fuelled open hatch bulk carrier concept features a number of innovative solutions, including a wide twin skeg hull, Oshima’s Seaworthy bow, air lubrication system, lean-burn four stroke medium speed gas engines and a flexible propulsion and power generation system with shaft generator/motor (PTO/PTI).
