UECC’s dual fuel LNG-powered car carriers are shipping new trams for Norway’s capital Oslo from Spain.

The trams are being delivered by UECC’s dual fuel LNG-powered car carriers and from 2021 LNG – battery hybrid vessels which will be joining the company’s fleet.

“Oslo is dedicated to building a green future, and these new energy-efficient trams will be tangible proof of those efforts,” said UECC ceo Glenn Edvardsen. “UECC is proud that our eco-friendly PCTC vessels were chosen to be part of this important delivery.”

The first tram was loaded on the UECC dual-fuel LNG PCTC Auto Eco in Pasajes, Spain on 11 September, with another four trams to be delivered this year. Regular shipments will start in September 2021 for the delivery of all 87 vehicles which are all expected to be in service by end of 2024.

“UECC will take delivery of our first LNG battery-hybrid PCTC at the end of 2021, with two more to follow,” Edvardsen commented. “Once these vessels join our fleet, we expect to deliver the remainder of the new trams all the way to Norway using this world-leading eco technology
