Last April, Sabic signed an agreement with Dutch company Anthony Veder for the manufacture of the two new LNG-powered carriers. The construction has already started and the delivery is expected in 2014.
Moreover, Jan Valkier, CEO of Anthony Veder, stated: “In recent years, we have built up a good deal of experience with LNG-powered ships. Our fleet is being continuously modernized, renewed and adjusted to comply with regulations, customer requirements and the high standards upheld by the gas industry. We are very pleased to be working together with a company like Sabic in a proactive stance towards the sustainability of commercial shipping.”
