BW LPG announced that it has exercised options to retrofit four additional tankers with LPG dual-fuel engines, bringing the company’s commitment to eight vessels with the dual-fuel propulsion technology.

Back in August 2018, BW LPG had announced an initiative to retrofit four LPG dual-fuel engines in its fleet. The retrofitting of the first four dual-fuel engines into VLGCs is taking place as planned this year.

“As the world’s largest owner and operator of VLGCs, BW LPG leverages on our scale and deep expertise in maritime shipping to invest in R&D and implement pioneering technology onboard that will push our industry towards decarbonisation – technology that can be implemented on at least 50% of current global VLGC fleet without the need for dedicated newbuilding orders,” said Anders Onarheim, ceo of BW LPG.
