World’s 1st Smart Oil Tanker


China has launched the world’s first intelligent very large crude carrier (VLCC) at the country’s shipbuilding major, Dalian Shipbuilding Industry (DSIC).


The 308,000 dwt vessel was named and delivered to its owner, China Merchants Energy Shipping (CMES), in a ceremony at the shipyard on June 22.


Featuring a length of 333 meters and a width of 60 meters, the new tanker’s main feature is an installed “intelligent” system. Namely, the ship has assisted autopilot navigation, intelligent liquid cargo management, and integrated energy efficiency management, among other functions.


The vessel has already finished its sea trial, as well as other tests, including intelligent equipment and system testing.


According to the shipbuilder, the new tanker does not only mark a milestone in the development of the world’s large-scale ocean-going intelligent ships, but also represents a new chapter in the tanker shipping sector.
