Shanghai Changjiang Shipping Co. (SCSC) on Friday (12 June) launched China’s first liquified natural gas (LNG) dual fuel inland waterway ship, the New Yangtze River 26007 at Dongfeng shipyard in Chongqing.
The conversion of the 7,000 dwt vessel was commissioned by SCSC in October 2019 and was carried out by CIMC Enric Holding.
“The successful technological transformation of the New Yangtze River 26007 is a practical application of China Merchants Group and SCSC Group in practicing Secretary General Xi Jinping’s construction of a green and ecological Yangtze River Economic Belt,” said Jiang Qinghua, deputy general manager of SCSC at the inauguration ceremony.
“New Yangtze River 26007 is the company’s first test vessel in response to the government’s campaign to promote the use of LNG along the Yangtze River.
“SCSC will continue to observe New Yangtze River 26007 ‘s performance and convert more of the company’s ships to use cleaner fuels like LNG.”
