DNV: No new confirmed orders for LNG-fuelled ships in January

03 Feb 2023

Classification society DNV on Monday (5 December) said there were no new confirmed orders for LNG in January, according to the latest DNV’s Alternative Fuels Insight (AFI) platform in November.

“The year has come off to a slow start for orders on alternative fuelled vessels, however February is already looking more promising. And although we saw no new confirmed orders for LNG in January, gas prices have come down to a level where LNG bunkering is for the time being getting more competitive,” Martin Wold, Principal Consultant in DNV’s Maritime Advisory business, said. 

According to the platform, order activity for alternative fuel vessels were muted at the start of the year. January 2023 saw two methanol fuelled bulk carriers ordered.

“Methanol saw a break-through with Cargill getting the first order for two methanol fuelled bulk carrier across the finish line,” Wold said in a social media post.
