UECC’s third battery hybrid PCTC launched in China
Jiangnan Shipyard in China has launched the final ship in a series of three pure car and truck carriers (PCTCs) ordered by United European Car Carriers (UECC).
Like its earlier sisters, the third PCTC will be fitted with a dual-fuel LNG battery hybrid propulsion system. This will enable the vessel to meet the IMO’s Tier III NOx emissions limitations for the North Sea and Baltic Sea.
The PCTC will be delivered to UECC during the first half of 2022 along with the second ship in the same series.
