TRAFIGURA ORDERS FOUR DUAL-FUEL AMMONIA-POWERED GAS CARRIERS

Trafigura has ordered four dual-fuel medium gas carriers (MGC) capable of running on ammonia that will be built at the HD Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in Ulsan, South Korea.

The vessels, which will be used to transport LPG or ammonia, will be delivered in 2027.

In a statement sent to Bunkerspot today (2 May), Andrea Olivi, Head of Wet Freight for Trafigura, said: ‘We are excited to embark together with HD Hyundai Mipo on this ambitious project which supports our commitments to decarbonising shipping and will help us to develop the global low-carbon ammonia bunkering infrastructure needed for zero-carbon shipping to become a reality.’

In today’s statement Trafigura also highlighted that it has co-sponsored the development of a two-stroke engine by MAN Energy Solutions that can run on green ammonia and it has tested a ‘full range’ of alternative shipping fuels including LNG, methanol, LPG and biofuels onboard its vessels.
