Hapag-Lloyd to convert 15,000 TEU vessel to LNG

547 HapagLloyd

 

Hapag-Lloyd will retrofit its 15,000 TEU ship Sajir to operate on LNG. When complete, the engine system will be able to function using either LNG or low-sulphur fuel oil. The plan is to operate the vessel using LNG, but to also be able to use low-sulphur fuel oil as a backup. This will be the world’s first retrofit to a containership of this size to LNG propulsion.
