The steel cutting ceremony for European Car Carriers (UECC)’s second LNG battery hybrid powered pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) recently took place at Jiangnan Shipyard, Shanghai, China on 20 May 2020.

Given the current Covid-19 crisis, the official steel cutting ceremony was reportedly somewhat subdued, however UECC’s CEO, Glenn Edvardsen, stated: “It pleases me tremendously that UECC is able to push ahead with this significant fleet renewal program, despite all the Covid-19 related challenges facing our industry.”

Edvardsen also previously stated that “the LNG battery hybrid installation will be a pioneering design and will take UECC beyond the IMO target of 40% reduction in carbon intensity by 2030.” He added that “UECC’s parent companies, Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) and Wallenius Lines, have sustainability in their DNA and it is an honour to be able to take UECC to the next level of clean shipping with their support.”
