Port Hedland in Western Australia welcomed its first LNG fuelled bulker this week in the shape of the capesize HL Green.

The 180,000 dwt, 2020-built, HL Green, became the first LNG-fuelled vessel to call in Port Hedland when it berthed on Wednesday.

The H Line Shipping was built in Korea and launched in December last year, and is expected to make 10 round voyages annually between Korea and Australia.

“Pilbara Ports Authority (PPA) was pleased to welcome HL Green and her crew to the Port of Port Hedland, as another milestone in our support of the transfer to LNG fuel as a way of reducing shipping emissions,” said PPA ceo, Roger Johnston.

The HL Green is fitted with two 1,600 cu m LNG fuel tanks on its stern.
