WE Tech bags order for UECC’s battery hybrid LNG car carrier
WE Tech Solutions, the energy efficiency solution provider, has received a repeat order from Jiangnan Shipyard Group, China to deliver its tech for UECC’s third LNG-powered PCTC.
In 2019, WE Tech has already contracted with Jiangnan Shipyard Group, China for delivering the same solution to a series of two PCTC vessels for UECC.
The WE Tech Solution Four includes WE Drive, Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Shaft Generator, DC-link power distribution, Energy Storage System (ESS) and the Energy Management System (EMS), the company said in its statement.
This tailored solution will place UECC’s new vessels beyond IMO’s target for a 40 percent reduction in carbon intensity by 2030. They will also meet the IMO Tier 3 NOx emissions limitations entering into force in the Baltic and North Sea from 2021.
The vessel will have a length overall of 169 meters, a width of 28 meters and a car carrying capacity of 3 600 units on 10 cargo decks, of which 2 decks are hoistable.
The vessel will have a quarter ramp of 160 metric tons safe working load and a side ramp of 20 metric tons safe working load and can accommodate cargo units up to 5.2 meters high.
