HHI wants to lead the eco-friendly ship market, by ordering numerous LNG carriers. Namely, Hyundai Mipo Dockyard won an order for a 50,000-ton LNG bulk carrier in 2016, while Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries will build six units of the world’s first LNG-powered VLCC.
LPGreen, a joint development project between four leaders in the maritime industry, has been working on a concept design for an LPG carrier capable of operating on LPG fuel. Almost a year into the project, the partners agree the results to date have been good.
Lloyd’s Register (LR), Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) will comprehensively review the design requirements between 6.6K LNG bunkering ships and 14K TEU LNG-fuelled container ships with the goal of verifying safe ship-to-ship LNG bunkering.
