This type of ship is a LPG dual-fuel main engine independently developed and designed by Jiangnan Shipbuilding. And it will be further upgraded to meet the new IGC Code, Tier III emission standard and the latest SOx emission requirements, with energy-saving and environmental protection characteristics.
The ship has a total length of 230 meters, a width of 36.6 meters, a depth of 22.2 meters, and a design draft of 11.5 meters. The three VLGCs are scheduled to be delivered in the third and fourth quarters of 2022.
