Green Initiatives

KGJS wants to contribute to the protection of the environment through Green initiatives and technology.

  • KGJS is presently involved in a number of activities with the aim to improve fuel efficiency, emissions, and effluents :
  • Performance monitoring of underwater hull and propeller to better determine the right timing for dry-docking or underwater cleaning and type of anti-fouling paint.
  • Performance monitoring of main engine to ensure efficient use of fuel and lubricating oil.
  • Installation of propeller appendixes.
  • Use of weather routing to ensure lower fuel consumption for the voyage.
  • Development of an environmental accounting system for monitoring vessel effluents, energy efficiency and awareness on energy consumption.
  • Improving our extensive on- board bilge and sludge management system.
  • Testing of ballast water treatment systems to get the best systems available installed at required implementation dates.
  • For newbuildings improving hull design and use of fuel efficient electronically controlled main engines.
  • Building the first LNG powered cement carriers in the world, for delivery December 2015 and May 2016. The vessels are 7,300 dwt and will be powered by LNG/MHO dual-fuel engine.
