Japan’s Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) has concluded a contract with Shin Kurushima Dockyard to build a second LNG-fuelled pure car and truck carrier (PCTC).
The ship, capable of carrying 7,000 units will deliver in 2022. No price was revealed.
In addition to these LNG-fuelled PCTCs, NYK will take delivery of an LNG-fuelled coal carrier in 2023.
NYK said in a release today it views LNG fuel as a “bridging” technology to realise future zero-emission ships.
