The vessel is the first of ten LNG dual-fuelled new-build ships that Anglo American will introduce to its chartered fleet during 2023 and 2024, delivering an estimated 35% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to ships fuelled by conventional marine oil fuel. The company says that use of LNG will also lead to a significant reduction of nitrogen oxides and particulate matter from vessel exhausts, while new technology also eliminates the release of unburnt methane.
