UECC has announced the deployment of its new dual fuel LNG PCTCs the M/V AUTO ECO and M/V AUTO ENERGY (the E-class) in its weekly Baltic Service.
The Baltic service has now included Malmö in the loop. After their Naming Ceremonies (M/V AUTO ECO on 21st November 2016 and M/V AUTO ENERGY on 7th February 2017), the world’s largest dual fuel LNG PCTCs are ready to trade in the Baltic.
Commenting on the E-class trading on the Baltic service, Head of Sales and Marketing Bjorn Svenningsen said: “These are the first in the world and they are fitted with a dual-fuel LNG propulsion system, allowing them to complete a fourteen-day round trip on LNG without refuelling. They are constructed to meet the highest ice class standard: Super 1A Finish /Swedish Ice Class, breaking through one meter of ice and continue to ensure reliable trading. Their flexibility, moveable decks and increased ramp capacity have been designed to allow all High & Heavy cargo, or almost any kind of RoRo stock. They are the type of vessels that you can count on 365 days a year.”
