Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and Germanischer Lloyd (GL) have successfully completed a feasibility study into the running of large LNG-fuelled container ships.
GL has recently finished approval for a 14,000teu LNG-fuelled container vessel for DSME.
DSME and GL had started a joint project in 2010 to explore technology options and safety concepts for large LNG-fuelled container vessels.
The LNG fuelled vessel will be both environmentally friendly and offer cost savings.
The move comes as the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is proposing to reduce SOX emissions from vessels by 2015 and new vessels operating in ECAs (emission control areas) are required to reduce NOX emission by 80% by 2016 compared with 2010.
