More LNG capacity for ZIM
ZIM Integrated Shipping Services has inked a new eight-year charter agreement with "a shipping company that is affiliated with Kenon Holdings", as was said in a press release. The charter covers three 7,000 teu liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual-fuel container vessels for a total consideration of approximately USD 400 million.
The vessels will be constructed at the South Korean shipyard Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries, and are all three scheduled to be delivered during the first and second quarters of 2024.
Eli Glickman, ZIM president & CEO, commented that the shipping company has "a focus on adding extremely versatile vessels that could serve us on multiple trades." Furthermore, "green" LNG-fuelled capacity further fosters ZIM's ambition to reduce its carbon footprint. (sh)
