New LPG carrier ordered from Hyundai Mipo

Eastern Pacific opts for dual fuel

by Port News Editorial Staff

Eastern Pacific is going for dual fuel ships. The Singapore-based company operating in the liquefied gas products transportation sector has commissioned a new gas tanker from the Hyundai Mipo shipyard running on diesel and LNG.

This order brings the number of 40,000 cubic meter capacity ships that the Korean shipyard will build for the Singapore-based shipowner to four.

As a result, the shipping company is now a leader in the medium-sized LPG carrier segment. Its current fleet, without counting new orders, already consists of 11 vessels, three of which were purchased in September 2019 from Neu and two others recently delivered by the Hyundai M shipyard.
