Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) has taken delivery of the very large crude oil carrier (VLCC) Tanzawa, the first new NYK-owned vessel to include an SOx scrubber.

The vessel was handed over on October 3 during a naming and delivery ceremony at the Kure shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation.

With the scrubber, the 311,374 dwt unit is compliant with the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) more stringent SOx emission regulation, which is scheduled to be implemented in January 2020.

The 339,5-meter-long ship will be about 23% more energy efficient, reducing CO2 emissions per unit of transport, exceeding the IMO EEDI phase 2 requirements that will become effective in 2020.

For further safety and optimal vessel operation, NYK has employed its integrated information and bridge system.
