“Ubuntu Integrity”, a 190K dwt dual fuel bulk carrier built by SWS for U-MING was named virtually on January 9, 2023, which is the first vessel named this year. The naming ceremony was held online in Taipei and Shanghai via video link.

“Ubuntu Integrity” is a new generation of dual fuel vessels with notable features such as “green, environmental protection, energy saving, and safety”, of which intellectual property is completely owned by SWS. It is driven by LNG fuel and traditional fuel, and is equipped with two C-type LNG fuel tanks. The fuel gas endurance reaches 20,000 nautical miles, allowing the vessel to complete two round-trip routes from China to Australia or one round-trip route from China to Brazil. Using LNG as fuel, it basically eliminates the emission of particulate matter and sulfide and the EEDI is 45% lower than the baseline. LNG fuel is highly favored by current shipping market, and its potential growth is extremely strong especially in the current context of carbon reduction and emission reduction. Following the trend of green, intelligent and low-carbon, SWS continues to increase technological innovation, launches product designs in line with the latest international norms and rules in the field of bulk carriers, oil tankers and container ships, develops energy-saving and environmental protection technologies, and leads the low-carbon trend of the industry.
