World’s First Pure Battery Tanker ‘Asahi’ Made Her First Bunkering Operation On Car Carrier

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) and Asahi Tanker announced that on April 26, the Asahi Tanker owned and operated tanker ASAHI—the world’s first pure battery tanker to operate completely on electricity—bunkered fuel on the MOL-operated car carrier VICTORIOUS ACE at the Daikoku Pier C-1 Wharf in Yokohama. This marked a commemorative moment for the ASAHI’s first bunkering operation.

The ASAHI’s large-capacity lithium-ion batteries power every phase of its operations, including cargo handling, berthing/unberthing, and navigation. This results in zero emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the vessel. The tanker delivers outstanding environmental performance and is expected to reduce crewmembers’ workloads by reducing engine maintenance requirements.

MOL and Asahi Tanker continue bunkering activities using the pure battery tanker, contributing to the reduction of GHG emissions even in the process of bunkering operations.
