Solvang signs LOI for two new ships
17.02.2017Solvang and partners have today signed a LOI with Hyundai Mipo Dockyard for the construction of 2 firm + 2 optional 21.000 cbm ethylene carriers for delivery Q1 and Q2 2019.
Final agreement is subject to satisfactory technical specification and contractual terms, with deadline set for late March 2017. The ships are designed for the future with full exhaust gas cleaning and Tier III compliance, giving high flexibility with regards to existing and future environmental regulations.
Making Heavy Fuel Oil Clean
Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) combined with previous measures reduces NOx emissions from heavy fuel oil by up to 80 % in a typical LPG tanker. The concept is a potential game changer for Norwegian domestic shipping.
The greenest and most fuel efficient VLGC ever
Solvang’s new-builds (84k cbm) at Hyundai Heavy Industries are two of the most fuel efficient LPG carriers ever built, in addition they are some of the world’s largest ships for transporting liquefied petroleum gas.
