Alfa Laval FCM Methanol chosen as the fuel supply system for six methanol-fuelled container vessels

Alfa Laval technology is playing a leading role in the marine industry’s transition to carbon-neutral green methanol. In this year’s largest methanol order to date, the Alfa Laval FCM Methanol will be the low-flashpoint fuel supply system (LFSS) on six dual-fuel container vessels. The system was chosen for both its real-life performance and its high design flexibility.

Decisive in the move to methanol
Alfa Laval will provide the methanol LFSS for six 1170 TEU container vessels ordered by Eastaway, a member of the X-Press Feeders Group. The new vessel series, to be built at Chinese shipyards Ningbo Xinle Shipbuilding Group Co., Ltd and New Dayang Shipbuilding Co., Ltd, will have two-stroke MAN B&W ME-LGIM engines that can run on methanol as well as conventional fuels. The FCM Methanol deliveries will begin in June 2023.

“Alfa Laval is proud to be chosen for this significant methanol project,” says Peter Nielsen, President, Alfa Laval Marine Separation & Heat Transfer Equipment. “With their ability to sail on green methanol, these vessels will be front-runners in the move to carbon-neutral operations. Methanol is a major advance on the path to decarbonization, and the FCM Methanol can be instrumental for shipowners in making the leap.”
