Environmentally friendly cement tanker visiting CMP

The newly built MV Greenland is the first dry bulk ship to be powered by LNG. It consequently meets both existing and forthcoming emissions regulations for international shipping.

With the ever greater environmental restrictions being placed on shipping, innovations are required in order to stay abreast of the competition. One of the ships which will have no problems in the near future is MV Greenland, which has called into CMP’s dry bulk terminal, Prøvestenen, on several occasions this summer.

The ship was built in 2015 to transport cement, and it is the first dry bulk ship which has been designed for LNG, and which has an LNG pressure tank built into the hull. MV Greenland is under contract to JT Cement, which is a collaboration between the Swedish company Erik Thun AB and KG Jebsen Cement from Norway. 

Using LNG as fuel is currently the most environmentally friendly solution, and enables the ship to meet the most stringent emissions regulations now in force, as well as forthcoming regulations.

The ship is equipped with a fully automated system for loading and unloading cement. Using compressed air supplied by the ship’s own system, the cement is made ”liquid”, and can easily be pumped through a sealed, dust-free pipe system to the facilities in the port. Greenland can also transport other bulk products such as fly ash and slag.

MV Greenland is 7,585 tonnes dw, 109.6 metres long and 14.9 m wide.
