The order for three 49,000 cu m LPG/ammonia carriers signifies a breakthrough for the shipyard in the clean energy vessels sector, which will be built and delivered by Yangzi- Mitsui Shipbuilding, a joint venture of Yangzijiang and Mitsui.

The vessels are scheduled for delivery before 2024.

I am pleased to see Yangzijiang record another milestone in the clean-energy space”.
