Purus Marine ordered four 45,000 cbm medium-sized gas carriers from Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in South Korea. These new vessels are expected to primarily carry ammonia.
The vessels, which will delivered by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in 2025 and 2026, will be dual fuel ammonia-ready and fitted with shaft generators and scrubbers.
It’s worth noting that Purus Marine has also secured options for two additional vessels.
Purus has a fleet of over 60 low-carbon vessels and terminals with a focus on the offshore wind, LNG and ammonia sectors.
The company, which was established by EnTrust Global, provides low-carbon maritime transportation and infrastructure systems to its global energy customers.
