Shanghai China Resources Dadong Shipping Engineering, a company under China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC), has begun conversion work to equip one of Hapag-Lloyd's containerships with a dual-fuel propulsion system.
Sajir, a 2014-built 15,000TEU vessel, will have its heavy fuel oil (HFO) burning engine converted into a dual-fuel engine that will run primarily on LNG with low-sulphur fuel oil (LSFO) as backup.
Sixteen other Hapag-Lloyd vessels will undergo similar retrofitting in China under a contract originally signed in January of this year.
