Japan Marine United (JMU) has won a unique order from Eco Bunker Shipping to build Asia’s first bunkering tanker capable of handling both LNG and low sulphur fuel oil. The 15,000 dwt ship will deliver in 2021. No price has been revealed.
The 96 m long vessel will have a capacity to hold 4,100 tons of LNG, or 2,500 cu m of oil.
JMU oversaw the entire conceptual design but has engaged Fukuoka Shipbuilding and Manila-based Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific Company (AG&P) to see through the vessel’s development.
