Terntank takes proactive operation to another league

25 Feb 2022

Terntank takes proactive operation to another league by its delivery of a greener tanker installed with enhanced digital solutions

Leading Swedish tanker operator Terntank takes delivery of TERN FORS on Friday, 25th of February, 2022. TERN FORS is the second tanker of a series of two that combine LBG/LNG engine-powered engines, are 100% biofuel compatible, emit no greenhouse gases or carbon particulates during port operations and facilitate enhanced digital solution for optimized operations.

We are thrilled to announce that TERN FORS has been delivered today from China Merchants Jinling Shipyard, Yangzhou, Dingheng Co Ltd to Terntank Rederi AS.

Designed by Terntank and Kongsberg Maritime CM AS, TERN FORS is the second of a series of two 15000 DWT chemical and product tankers. The vessel, has been uniquely designed with the Hybrid Solution® combining dual-fuel powered engine that uses LBG (liquefied biogas) or LNG (liquefied natural gas), which means that it is able to operate on completely fossil-free fuel.

Additionally, TERN FORS has been installed with Kongsberg’s digital solution vessel insight. The digital solution installed upon the vessel optimizes voyages, achieved by constantly adjusting the vessel’s speed to meet its’ agreed time of arrival and utilizing slow streaming, which allows the vessel to send a virtual NOR, moving directly into port, instead of dropping anchor and waiting to berth. This also ensures compliance with the BIMCO clause on slow steaming and tracks real-time savings.

This digital solution offers enhanced their “Just-In-Time” management, which is continuously developed, providing vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure capturing and aggregating quality data in respect to the vessel’s overall operation. The data gathered ranges from engine and piston performance, hull build up, to even contact with ice. This data is then utilized to allow efficient and proactive maintenance, evidently leading to reduced emissions, placing Terntank’ s green operations in another league.

Furthermore TERN FORS as sister vessel TERN ISLAND, is 100% biofuel compatible. The main engine, boiler and auxiliary engine are designed to reduce the environmental impact and perform safe operations running on biofuels. By combining the optimized hull and rudder design with dual fuel capability, when utilising 30% biogas, in comparison to a same sized conventional vessel, TERN FORS reduces emission by: -70% of CO2 and almost eliminated the emissions of sulphur oxide (-99%), of particle emission, (-99%) and nitrogen oxide (-97%).

Claes Möller, Chief Executive Officer of Tärntank Ship Management notes that:
“The delivery of TERN ISLAND and TERN FORS mark our ongoing journey to evolve and learn, in respect of continuously developing sustainable shipping across all range of our operations. The innovative ship design of TERN FORS and TERN ISLAND, unites technical and digital solutions that optimize voyages, achieves a drastic decrease in emissions and most significantly assists our crew onboard in daily operations.

We are passionate and our philosophy is that it should be easy to do the right thing, especially for our crew which are the core of our business. To make this a reality, it takes a lot of hard work behind the scenes and the enhanced insights which the digital solutions provide, help us to further achieve this.”

TERN FORS and TERN ISLAND not only drastically lower emissions via fuel consumption and digital solutions and have the ability to eliminate the use of fossil fuel during port operations with their HYBRID SOLUTION®, the delivery of the vessels is also a clear signal of Terntanks ambition to be a forerunner in the sector and an indication of the important role of digital solutions in shaping the new green era in shipping.

TERN FORS has a cargo capacity of 16500 cubic meters in 14 epoxy coated tanks, will be commercially operated by the Finnish North European Oil Trade (NEOT) in the Baltic Sea area and will be included in a pool along with other vessels from Terntank. The vessel which has been delivered before contract date due to the skilful efforts of everyone involved, will now proceed to Europe fully loaded with bio products.

TERN FORS delivered

25 Feb 2022

We are thrilled to announce that TERN FORS has been delivered today from China Merchants Jinling Shipyard, Yangzhou, Dingheng Co Ltd to Terntank Rederi AS.

TERN FORS is the second 15.000 dwt vessels that will be commercially operated by North European Oil Trade in the Baltic Sea area. TERN FORS has a cargo capacity of 16500 cubic meters in 14 epoxy coated tanks.

The pioneering new vessel design is derived from the product carriers of Ternsund-type. Together with the design partner Kongsberg Maritime we have taken a step further, combining LBG/LNG-powered engines with the Hybrid Solution®.

TERN FORS is equipped with the Hybrid Solution®, the combination between battery pack, shore power connection and a DC-Link system. The Hybrid Solution® does not only enable us to preform fossil free port operations, but also enables peak shaving to reduce the emissions even further. The battery packs also act as reserve to provide an energy reserve for power generation, limiting unnecessary parallel running of generators and provides a blackout prevention function that keeps the electrical network alive. TERN FORS is designed to reduce the environmental impact and perform safe operations. By combining the optimized hull and rudder design with dual fuel capability, TERN FORS will reduce fuel and energy consumption resulting in extensively low CO2, sulphur oxide, nitrogen oxide, noice, particle emissions.

“The innovating ship design drastically lowers the emissions and combined together with the Terntank Hybrid solution® we can eliminate the use of fossil fuels in port operations” - Tryggve Möller, Ship Owner

The vessel will now proceed to load bio products for Europe.

Zero emission at port operations on the way as Terntank introduces greener tanker

10 Feb 2022

Leading Swedish tanker operator Terntank and the Port of Gothenburg will make maritime and environmental history on Thursday, 10th February when they welcomed ‘Tern Island’, a tanker that emits no greenhouse gases or carbon particulates during port operations.

TERN ISLAND, a pioneering new vessel, designed with Terntanks Hybrid Solution® arrived at Gothenburg Port earlier today, Thursday, 10th of February 2022 successfully performing zero emissions port operations. TERN ISLAND is equipped with new electric power supply hybrid system, including a battery pack, on-shore power supply and a DC-Link system which is reported to be able to reduce its auxiliary energy consumption during port operations by -99%. The shore power connection has been developed together with the Port of Gothenburg, which is said to be the first port in the world that can connect tankers to electricity.

Furthermore, TERN ISLAND is 100% biofuel compatible. The main engine, boiler and auxiliary engine are designed to reduce the environmental impact and perform safe operations running on biofuels. By combining the optimized hull and rudder design with dual fuel capability, when utilising 30% biogas, in comparison to a same sized conventional vessel, TERN ISLAND reduces emission by: -70% of CO2 and almost eliminated the emissions of sulphur oxide (-99%), of particle emission, (-99%) and nitrogen oxide (-97%)

Designed by Terntank and Kongsberg Maritime CM AS and delivered on the 15th of December, 2021 at China Merchants Jinling Shipyard, Yangzhou, Dingheng Co. Ltd., the vessel is the first of a series of two 15000 DWT chemical and product tankers in the Terntank Hybrid Solution® series. The vessel combines a dual-fuel powered engine that uses LBG (liquefied biogas) or LNG (liquefied natural gas), which means that it is able to operate on completely fossil-free fuel. The vessel, is part of Terntanks most significant expansion order throughout the company’s history, for delivery of a next generation fleet, aimed at sustainable performance.

The Hybrid Solution® of TERN ISLAND does not only enable performance on fossil free port operations, but also enables peak shaving to reduce the emissions even further. The battery packs also provides an energy reserve for power generation, limiting unnecessary parallel running of generators and provides a blackout prevention function that keeps the electrical network alive.

TERN ISLAND has a cargo capacity of 16500 cubic meters in 14 epoxy coated tanks, will be commercially operated by the Finnish North European Oil Trade (NEOT) in the Baltic Sea area and will be included in a pool along with other vessels from Terntank.

The shore power supply is part of Gothenburg’s Energy Port initiative, which is the first of its kind in the world. When complete it will enable a reduction in carbon emissions from vessels in the port by 1,800 tonnes per year. Gothenburg is not the only port that is investing in shore power supply Gävle is finalizing their shore power connection in June 2022 and Port of Pori is in the planning stage. Making the potential of shore power related CO2 emission savings even greater.
