A unit of China’s GNG Ocean Shipping has ordered fifty small LNG-powered bulk carriers that will be deployed on the Pearl River in Guangdong province.

Besides Guijiang, two other Chinese yards placed their bids to build the vessels, the document shows.

The deal has a price tag of about 659 million yuan ($101 million).

In addition, Guijiang will build twenty-five 2,000 dwt vessels and the same amount of 3,000 dwt carriers.

All the vessels will feature only LNG propulsion, the document said.
