AET’s new dual-fuel aframaxes named at SHI

LNG dual-fuelled aframax vessel for AET

The Eagle Brasilia and Eagle Bintulu are to start operating on long-term charters to Shell and will work primarily in the Atlantic Basin.
The two vessels, which will be able to run on LNG for up to about 6,000 nautical miles, have conventional single-screw propulsion with a two stroke main engine, three auxiliary engines and two auxiliary boilers, all equipped for LNG operation. Fuel is supplied from two 850m3 type-C tanks located aft on each side of the main deck. The tanks are both equipped with two LNG feed pumps which provide full redundancy and the tankers can receive fuel from LNG bunkering vessels via ship-to-ship transfer.
Other features of the vessels include an optimised hull form with various energy-saving devices such as an asymmetric rudder bulb, SAVER fin and SAVER stator. Variable frequency drives are installed for the main sea water cooling pumps and mass type flow meters will measure fuel consumption. The vessels’ energy efficiency design index (EEDI) is 28.8% higher than IMO Phase O and is bordering on Phase 3, only due to be implemented in 2025, when operating in gas mode, AET said.

Two new dual-fuelled aframax tankers built for AET, a MISC Berhad subsidiary, have been named in a ceremony at Samsung’s Geoje shipyard, South Korea.
