The ship will be running on zero-emission liquid biogas (LBG) or LNG.

The new bulk carrier is being constructed at Wuhu, China using Norway’s vessel architect Polarkonsult’s PK-164 LNG EcoBulk design.

Polarkonsult chose Kongsberg to supply it with a propulsion system and LNG engine.

The ship’s delivery is expected in 2023.

Bård Bjørløw, EVP global sales and marketing, Kongsberg Maritime., said: “We’re moving towards halving the emissions you’d normally associate with vessels of this size and specification, so this bulk carrier represents something of a showcase for fuel-efficient, future-focused and environmentally-friendly maritime freight transport solutions.”
