EXMAR Orders Up to 8 LPG Vessels
EXMAR announced the order at Hyundai Mipo of up to 8 LPG vessels of 38,000 m³ capacity. The vessels will be delivered beginning in the First Quarter of 2014 onwards.
These vessels will be dedicated to strengthening EXMAR’s already substantial commercial portfolio in the midsize segment and are designed to keep it ahead of the upcoming amendments in environmental
The vessels will feature hull line optimization to reduce resistance in water with corresponding savings in CO2 emissions and consumption; ballast water treatment systems to minimize transfer of harmful aquatic organisms; funnel design, facilitating the installation of a scrubber which reduces sulphur air emissions; engine room and deck design ready for LNG or LPG as fuel with inherent reductions in CO2,
SOx and NOx air emissions.
By so doing, EXMAR wishes to adhere to its tradition of providing operational and technical excellence at the service of its customers.
