Shanghai is planning to replace up to 36 waste disposal containerships that currently consume traditional bunker fuel with liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered versions.
The first of such vessels, which ferry domestic waste to disposal facilities along the Huangpu River, was put into service on 4 January, according to local media.
The 55.6-meter-long vessel was built by Shanghai SMI Environmental Industry and has a carrying capacity of 30 twenty-feet equivalent units (TEUs) or 600 metric tonnes (mt).
