Gagarin Prospect, the world’s first LNG-fuelled Aframax crude oil tanker which is owned and operated by Sovcomflot (SCF Group), has been awarded ‘Ship of the Year’ at the 2019 Marine Propulsion Awards. The award ceremony was held in Amsterdam in May at the Sulphur Cap 2020 Conference.Delivered in 2018, the tanker is the lead ship in Sovcomflot’s ‘Green Funnel’ series of 114,000-dwt Aframax tankers designed to use cleaner-burning LNG as their primary fuel.

The introduction of these vessels has set a new safety standard for the global tanker industry. Compared with engines burning standard marine fuels, the use of LNG allows for a 27 per cent reduction in Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions; a 76 per cent reduction in Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions; a 100 per cent reduction in Sulphur Oxides (SOx) emissions, and a 100 per cent reduction in particulate matter emissions.
