Aspo’s ESL Shipping and Sinotrans & CSC Shipbuilding Industry Corp. have agreed to assign building of ESL Shipping's LNG-fuelled bulk carriers to Sinotrans & CSC main yard, Jinling Shipyard, located in Nanjing, China.

The agreement has no effect on the contract price.

The two new, ice-class 1A ships will be the first LNG-fuelled large bulk carriers in the world. CO2 emissions per ton of cargo transported will be reduced by more than 50% in comparison to present vessels. The new ships will start operating in the Baltic Sea during 1H18.

Mikki Koskinen, Managing Director of ESL Shipping, said: "We are extremely pleased with competence of Sinotrans & CSC Shipbuilding. Together with Jinling Shipyard we shall make shipping more sustainable and environmentally aware than ever before."
