JMU Eco ship

eFuture 13000C

In 2010, JMU developed the "eFuture" series of low environmental load ship by integrating the environmental technologies accumulated to date in IHIMU . "Future" means precisely that, while the initial letter "e," meaning "ecology," "environmental," and "economy," particularly considering the customer, was added to the "F Series," which derives from a lineage that includes the world's first standard bulk carriers, beginning with the "Freedom," completed in 1967. The lineup of concept designs includes the large-scale container ship "eFuture 13000," with a capacity of 13,000 containers, the VLCC "eFuture 310T," and the Handymax class bulk carrier "eFuture 56B." All of these ships realize a 30% reduction in CO2 emissions while sailing.


In 2011, JMU began work at Universal Shipbuilding Corporation to improve hull performance, construct a low fuel consumption engine plant, and improve performance in actual seas, placing particular emphasis on improvement of energy efficiency and recovery of waste heat. As a result, we developed the "G209BC" as the first ship in the "G Series," which realizes a 25% reduction in environmental loads and 25% reduction in fuel consumption (actual sea base; in comparison with existing ships). The "G" in the name "G Series" is the first letter in "Green Ship," and means an environment-friendly ship that reduces Green House Gases. The "G209BC" is equipped with the optimum route search and monitoring system Sea-Navi® as standard equipment, contributing to preparation of energy saving navigation plans, and has already been tied to orders. As another ship in the "G Series," development of the "G80BC" has been completed, realizing reductions of more than 25% in environmental loads and fuel consumption (in comparison with existing ships). With the concerted efforts of all our engineers, JMU is continuing to develop "Economical, environment-friendly ships" in order to create a new future for the planet.
