James Fisher opts for LNG-powered tankers

UK-based marine services provider James Fisher plans to add two LNG-powered tankers to its capacity during 2022 as it looks to comply with new IMO rules and slash emissions.

The firm says that James Fisher Everard (JFE) would use the ships alongside its existing fleet.

In addition, the firm claims these dual-fuel IMO II tankers are the “first clean product tankers of this size to incorporate this emissions-reducing propulsion technology.”

The vessels, specifically designed for ports with restricted access around the coastline of Northern Europe, would enable the firm to better service existing long-term contracts, while the IMO II notation would provide greater flexibility to respond to market demand, the firm said.

James Fisher did not reveal any additional information regarding the vessels.
