Philippines-based Hanjin Heavy Industries will construct two very large gas carriers (VLGCs) for Belgian gas shipping company Exmar.
To be classed by Lloyd’s Register, the 80,000-cubic-metre newbuildings will each be powered by an individual LPG-powered MAN engine to comply with the IMO sulphur-emission legislation due to start in 2020.
The vessels are scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2020.
The VLGCs will be chartered by Statoil for worldwide LPG transportation upon completion.
