Hyundai Heavy Industries unveil LNG-fuelled bulk carrier design

20 Dec 2017

Korean yard Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) organised a technology briefing session at its Busan headquarters in mid-December to unveil the design of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) propelled bulk carrier.

The vessel design, available in 180,000 and 250,000 deadweight tonne versions, was showcased to Polaris Shipping, SK Shipping, Korea Shipping and other delegates at the session.

HHI noted shipping companies currently trying to apply LNG propulsion principles which had been applied to LNG carriers, to other vessels such as oil tankers, container ships, and bulk carriers in order to meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations.

"We are considering various measures to cope with the increasingly stringent environmental regulations," said a Polaris Shipping official who participated in the event.

"It seems that Hyundai Heavy Industries' newly developed LNG propulsion bulk can be a good solution."
