304 UECC

United European Car Carriers (UECC) has contracted with Kawasaki Heavy Industries to build two dual-fuel LNG 3,800 unit capacity Pure Car and Truck Carriers (PCTCs) at the builder’s joint venture NACKS shipyard in Nantong, PRC. The vessels will be built to Finnish/Swedish ice class 1A Super standards thereby allowing for dedicated year round trading in the Baltic Sea. They will be the first PCTCs to be fitted with an LNG-fuel propulsion system. Established in 1990, UECC, jointly owned by NYK and Wallenius Lines is a leading short-sea ro-ro operator and logistics provider in Europe.
