Japanese shipping firm NYK Line on Friday (6 November) said it has placed an order for two of its first liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) dual-fuel very large gas carriers (VLGCs) from Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd.
Both ships will be built at the KHI Sakaide Works shipyard and are set for delivery in 2022.
When LPG is used as bunker fuel, exhaust gas from the ordered VLGCs will contain at least 85% less sulfur oxide (SOx) and 15% less carbon dioxide (CO2) compared to conventional VLGCs equipped with fuel-oil engines, noted NYK.
In addition, by equipping the ships with LPG tanks on deck, the vessels will be designed to make it possible to load LPG for fuel separately from the LPG cargo.
Having the LPG tanks on deck extends the cruising range of the vessel when LPG fuel is used even though the size of the vessel remains the same, explained NYK.
In the future, by developing an eco-friendly fleet, NYK will be able to provide customers with a low-carbon transport option and contribute to the reduction of emissions from shipping and realise a sustainable global economy.
