Proman Stena Bulk has taken delivery of its second methanol-powered newbuild MR tanker, Stena Pro Marine.

The 49,990DWT tanker was built by China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International. It is a near-identical sister of Stena Pro Patria, which was delivered in June 2022.

Proman Stena Bulk said the use of methanol reduces NOx emissions by 60 per cent and CO2 emissions by up to 15 per cent on a tank to wake basis versus conventional marine fuels.

Power is provided by MAN dual-fuel engines.
