The newly ordered tankers are designed to meet environmental regulations as eco-friendly ship with the Ballast Water Treatment Systems and Selective Catalytic Reduction equipped in preparation for the IMO’s regulations. In addition, a number of fuel-saving technologies will be applied to the tankers to enhance operational efficiency. For example, propellers and vessel shape will be tailored specifically and optimally to the ship-owner’s intended route conditions.

In particular, the SVESSEL, the first next-generation smart ship system in the domestic shipbuilding industry developed by SHI, will be embedded in the two tankers to ensure cost-effective and safe operation with functions that help crew plan fuel-saving optimal routes, monitor equipment performance in real time, diagnose equipment failures and remotely control the tankers from an onshore location.

An official of SHI, said that “The stricter environmental regulations will increase the demand for smart ships designed with high fuel efficiency all around the world. Based on our world-class technological prowess and quality, we will secure more orders.”
