Singapore’s Eastern Pacific Shipping has ordered another LNG-powered pure truck and car carrier at China Merchants Jinling Shipyard.
The duo signed the new deal via a video call on September 17 and EPS now has in total nine LNG PCTCs on order at the Chinese shipbuilder.
Both of the orders include options for two vessels, boosting the total up to 12 LNG-powered ships for Idan Ofer’s EPS.
The 199.9 meters long vessels will have a total car capacity of about 7,000 units. In addition, each ship will feature two 2,000-cbm LNG tanks.
According to the EPS website, the yard should deliver all of the nine vessels in 2023-2025.
