Singapore’s Eastern Pacific Shipping has ordered three dual-fueled LPG carriers that will go on a long-term charter to Norway’s Eqiunor.
South Korea’s Hyundai Mipo Dockyard will deliver the three mid-sized gas carriers in 2022.
EPS, controlled by Israeli billionaire Idan Ofer, did not provide any additional info on the Equinor charter.
The ship management company says the deal is in line with its environmental policy as it is looking to boost the use of alternative marine fuels to reduce emissions.
The Singaporean company operates eleven gas carriers including eight medium-sized LPG vessels.
It has also several liquefied natural gas-powered vessels on order and plans to book more.
