China's first inland hybrid LNG-fuelled ro-ro vessel is set to commence operations on the Yangtze river after its delivery earlier this month.
The 110 m ro-ro vessel Minsheng was delivered to Minsheng Steamship Co. in China on June 21, the China Classification Society said in a statement on its website.
The ship is capable of running on LNG as a bunker fuel as well as conventional fuels. The ship has a closed water circulation system as part of its gas supply system.
"CCS constantly consolidates the new technology of LNG fuel, provides customers with high-quality services of plan approval, product and ship inspection in LNG power technology," the organisation said in the statement.
