he vessels will be under long-term time charter upon delivery and, as per Seaspan’s statement, are the largest PCTCs under development to date. Furthermore, Seaspan reminds that it has an existing 70-vessel newbuild program which includes 25 dual-fuel LNG containerships.
As Bing Chen, President and CEO of Seaspan, stated, by incorporating their extensive experience in dual-fuel LNG containerships, while working proactively with all stakeholders during this decarbonization journey, Seaspan is uniquely poised to contribute to the standards and progress of sustainable shipping.
As jurisdictions seek to transition away from conventional fueled vehicles to electric vehicles, we see this as an opportunity to not only meet the current demand for sustainable shipping solutions but also support the global initiative for cleaner transportation alternatives.
