Toyofuji Shipping formally named its newest vehicle carrier during a christening and launching ceremony held at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ (MHI) Shimonoseki Shipyard on Friday, June 7.

Once completed, Trans Harmony Green will have an LOA of approximately 195 metres, a beam of approximately 30.6 metres, a gross tonnage of 49,500, and capacity for 3,000 cars.

The main engine and the main generator will be dual-fuel capable to operate on either diesel or LNG. MHI said that these will enable a greater than 25 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to ships with the same hull and powered by fuel oil, cutting SOx emissions significantly helping reduce the vessel’s environmental footprint.

The propulsion will also deliver a service speed of 19.5 knots.

Trans Harmony Green is scheduled to be handed over to Toyofuji Shipping in late January 2025 following the completion of outfitting work and sea trials. The vessel will be operated primarily on shipping routes in Asia.
