Petredec had contracted for up to six 93,000-m3 dual-fuel VLGCs at Jiangnan Shipyard. Three firm orders are due for delivery in the first half of 2023 and the contract includes options on three more, also for 2023 delivery.
“Petredec has always been at the forefront of new technology and this order continues our tradition of investing in the most efficient and environmentally friendly solution,” says Petredec’s fleet director Phillip Harwood. “We are convinced that using LPG as bunker fuel in the MAN ES LGIP engine is the best contributor to achieving the targeted 40% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030.”
Giles Fearn, CEO of Petredec Group, adds: “We are proud to have ordered the next generation of VLGCs, which marks an important step for both us and the industry towards de-carbonisation by emitting 30% less CO2 than the previous generation 84,000-m3 ships burning LSFO. It clearly positions Petredec as the pre-eminent owner of VLGCs with dual fuel LPG and we are excited for what this next chapter in the company’s evolution will bring.”[post_title] => Petredec goes large in VLGCs [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => petredec-goes-large-in-vlgcs [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2020-11-03 10:28:20 [post_modified_gmt] => 2020-11-03 10:28:20 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://hcblive.com/?p=30063 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw )
