All newbuilds on the Company’s orderbook have been placed in top quality shipyards and are designed to meet the Phase 3 requirements of Energy Efficiency Design Index related to the reduction of green house gas emissions – GHG -EEDI Phase 3 as adopted by the International Maritime Organization – IMO and with the latest NOx emissions regulation, NOx-Tier III (IMO, MARPOL Annex VI, reg. 13) The two dual-fuled newbuilds are capable of operating with methanol and fuel. When powered by green methanol the vessels can produce close to zero GHG emissions based on the life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology well-to-propeller (WTP).
