SCOD Presents Deliverance, a DynaWing Solar Hybrid Supertanker that qualifies as the Largest and by far
the Greenest Post Panamax Vessel to be built and as such is the most Economical form of Crude Oil Trans-
port to and from any part of the Globe.
To reduce fuel consumption and GHG emissions by up to 75% this superior fluid dynamic Emax Supertanker
obtains half of her power from LNG and the other half from the latest advances in Solar and Wind Power
The Emax Deliverance is a 2 million barrel 330,000dwt Supertanker designed specifically for the newly
enlarged locks of the Panama Canal which will accommodate vessels that have a maximum length of 426m,
a beam of 54m and a draft of 18 meters.
Being longer, narrower and having less draft than previous 2 million barrel VLCC’s, the hull of the Deliv-
erance produces less drag which in conjunction with twin CRP Hybrid Propulsion Pods reduces fuel con-
sumption and GHG emissions by 35%. An additional 20 to 30% reduction is achieved her 5,000 sq. meter
DynaWing Boom Furling sails and another 15 to 20% reduction by her Solbian Solar Power generating array.
The realization of up to a 75% reduction is made possible by Mitsubishi’s Bubble Hull and Wartsila’s Coded
Hybrid power system.
Generally speaking the total power requirement for a conventional 330,000dwt Supertanker is 30MWs.
By comparison the total power requirement for the advanced 330,000dwt Emax Solar Hybrid Supertanker
is 20MWs; 10MWs from LNG, 10MWs from the Sun and Wind.
LNG Power source;
Wartsila LLC Duel Fuel Hybrid Power equal to 10MWs.
Key benefits of Wartsila DF engines and LLC (Low Loss Concept)
Low exhaust gas emissions
Fuel economy over the entire engine operating rang.
Sustainable and Renewable Sun and Wind Power Sources;
DynaWing sails 4 to 8MWs.
The Dynawing Masts are covered in light concentrating film to magnify the light that hits the Solar panels
below.The furled mainsail sheets may also incorporate a Fresnel film. This light concentrating feature
raises the efficiency of the Solar cells from 22% to up to 35%.
SunPower Solbian Solar Panels up to 4MWs.
Solbian marine solar panels have the highest rated efficiency and come with a 25 year warrantee. The
energy harnessed from the Sun is stored in a 5MWh Lithium UPS to allow for Zero carbon docking and to
power all Hotel services.
As a Certified Carbon Offset Project, the Carbon Offset or reduction in GHG emissions achieved by
Deliverance is 110,000 tons per year or roughly a reduction of 3 million tons of CO2 over the Supertankers
25 year service life.
Richard Sauter commented “ A Solar Hybrid Post Panamax VLCC presents us with a major win win scenario,
for apart from safeguarding the planet, oil companies can look forward to savings of up to 60 million dollars
a year on the purchase of fuel, which at todays prices not only pays for the Emax Supertanker in under 4
years, but increases earnings over her service life by over 1.5 billion US dollars.
The Cost of Deliverance is approximately 15% above the cost of a conventional 330,000dwt Supertanker.
