Jones Act vessels to get Generon Nitrogen Generator Systems
July 16, 2019
July 16, 2019 – GENERON is preparing to ship the first complete marine nitrogen generator system for two LNG-fueled containerships being constructed at Keppel AmFELS that will join the Pasha Hawaii fleet.
GENERON’s scope of work is to supply a complete marine membrane nitrogen generator system rated for 300 M3/H of N2 to each of the the two vessels. The company’s contract value is undisclosed.
The two new LNG-fueled (liquefied natural gas) fueled containerships will be built at Texas-based Keppel AmFELS, a subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine. The two vessels will be delivered in the first and third quarters of 2020.
Honolulu-based Pasha Hawaii has announced that the ships will join its fleet which provides service to the Hawaii/Mainland trade lane. The new 774-foot U.S. Jones Act vessels will carry 2,525 TEUs, including a fully laden capacity of 500 45-foot containers, 400 refrigerated containers, and 300 40-foot dry containers.
According to Pasha Hawaii, the new vessels will operate fully on LNG from day one in service, significantly reducing environmental impact and increasing fuel efficiency. Energy savings will also be achieved with an optimised hull form and an underwater propulsion system with a high-efficiency rudder and propeller.
Pasha Hawaii is a wholly owned subsidiary of the family-owned global logistics and transportation company, The Pasha Group, one of the nation’s leading Jones Act shipping and integrated logistics companies.
GENERON is a leading supplier of both membrane and pressure swing absorption nitrogen generator systems for marine and offshore use. The company is headquartered in Houston, with sales and service offices all over the world.
