Neptune Lines orders two more LNG-powered PCTCs in China

Greece’s Neptune Lines has ordered two more LNG-fueled pure car and truck carriers at China’s Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding.

Neptune Lines said in a statement issued this week that the LNG dual-fuel vessels with a capacity of 4,200 ceu boost its total newbuilding orders to four vessels through the “Genesis Project”.

Last year, the firm ordered its first two LNG-powered PCTCs at the same year and with delivery scheduled in 2026.

The Chinese shipbuilder will deliver the two new ships specially designed for its short sea trades in 2027.

Neptune Lines did not reveal the price tag of the deal.

The first two vessels were said to be each worth about $75 million.

Continuing the collaboration established with the first two vessels, Neptune Lines reaffirmed its partnership with Finland-based designer Deltamarin, a part of China Merchants Group, for the co-design of the two additional vessels.

The vessels will have hybrid energy systems, including a battery installation to supply peak power, and a dual-fuel high pressure 2-stroke engine, enabling them to utilize LNG or VLSFO as fuel for reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
