The contract includes the construction of three 5000 cubic meter LPG ships and additional order for two vessels.

CIMC SOE, which is a unit of CIMC ENRIC, claims that the vessels will be the world’s first dual-fuelled full-pressure LPG carriers.

The vessels will feature MAN’s LPG dual-fuelled main engine.

CIMC SOE said the deal was signed via a video conference due to the current situation related to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

The two companies previously joined forces on a number of projects including the liquefied ethylene gas (LEG) carrier Gaschem Beluga.
