Hyundai Heavy Industries, the world’s biggest shipbuilder, today won an US$ 400 million order to build two 155,000 m3 LNG carriers for Singapore-based BW Maritime. The contract also includes an option to build two same class LNG ships.
These membrane-type LNG carriers, measuring 228 m in length, 44.2 m in width and 26 m in depth, are due for delivery in the second half of 2014 and the first half of 2015.
The ships will feature the Dual Fuel Diesel Engine System (DFDE) which allows the ship to run both on oil fuel or natural gas.
