COSCO SHIPPING introduces new marine methanol fuel bunkering group standards

China Marine Bunker (PetroChina) Co. (CHIMBUSCO), a shipping service company under COSCO SHIPPING, held the "Green Methanol Refuelling Capacity Building Conference" during the Global Sustainable Transportation Forum and the 15th International Exhibition on Transportation Technology & Equipment.

During the conference, China Petroleum Circulation Association (CPCA) and the China Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Association (CIQA) officially released two group standards, "Marine Methanol Fuel Waterborne Refuelling Regulations" and “Marine Methanol Fuel”, which were initiated by CHIMBUSCO.

Meanwhile, China Classification Society (CCS) and Bureau Veritas (BV) issued the 7,800-ton dual-fuel powered green methanol bunkering vessel AIP certificates to CHIMBUSCO and COSCO SHIPPING Heavy Industry.

The release of these standards, along with the approval of the "7,800-ton dual-fuel powered green methanol bunkering vessel" by two classification societies, signifies a major step towards completing the first green methanol refuelling technology chain in China. This achievement is complemented by the establishment of relevant methanol refuelling guidelines and inspection specifications by CCS and BV.

Alex Gregg-Smith, senior vice president of BV, emphasised that "this vessel is the first of its kind designed in China and represents a significant milestone in the shipping industry's decarbonization efforts."

According to Zhao Yan, Vice President of China Classification Society, the 7,800-ton dual-fuel powered green methanol bunkering vessel has been designed with the concept of full life cycle.

It features twin engines and twin oars, a domestically made four-stroke methanol dual-fuel main engine, a liquid cargo pump in the form of a machine belt, a pre-installed berthing perception system, and a remote-control refuelling arm operation system. These advanced technologies showcase the industry's cutting-edge advancements and highlight the ship's green, intelligent, and digital characteristics.
