ITOPF sponsored environmental award goes to Teekay with Wärtsilä Marine Solutions
26 November, 2018
The winner of this year's Tanker Shipping & Trade Environmental Award sponsored by ITOPF was Teekay with Wärtsilä Marine Solutions for its E-Shuttle tanker concept. The award was presented at a gala dinner at the end of the first day of the annual Tanker Shipping and Trade Conference on 20th November 2018.
The 130,000 dwt vessels will operate on both liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the primary fuel, and a mixture of LNG and recovered volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as secondary fuel. This new and innovative shuttle tanker design will signficantly reduce emissions and fuel consumption.
