Pacific International Lines (PIL) has contracted Yangzijiang Shipbuilding for the construction of four 8,000 teu liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual-fuel container vessels.
The vessels, which will be delivered progressively in 2025, will be equipped with an ammonia intermediate ready fuel tank.
Lars Kastrup, CEO of PIL, outlined two reasons for the order. He stated: “Firstly, this is part of our ongoing efforts to optimise and renew our assets for greater operational efficiency. The new vessels will complement our existing fleet and support us in the enhancement of our connectivity to better meet the needs of our customers worldwide.
