China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Weihai) has entered into shipbuilding contract with Eastern Pacific Shipping via online meeting for the construction of four plus two 7,000 equivalent units car carriers. 

The series of the dual fuel car carriers ordered by Eastern Pacific Shipping will be 199.9 metres in length and 38 metres width, equipped with two 2,000 cubic metres LNG gas storage tanks.
