Honolulu-based shipper, Pasha Hawaii is close to finalizing contract details for an order of two LNG-fueled containerships with one of the two shortlisted U.S. shipyards. 

The company said on Wednesday that the details are expected to be finalized by the end of this month, with the final shipyards selection to be made in January 2017. The order for the two LNG-fueled containerships includes an option to order two additional units.

The LNG-fueled newbuilds will have a shipping capacity of 3,400 TEUs,including 500 45-foot containers and 400 refrigerated containers, and a sailing speed of 23 knots.

Delivery of the first vessel is expected in mid-2019, while the second vessel should be delivered in early 2020.

According to Pasha Hawaii, the two LNG dual-fueled vessels will be the first of their kind in the Hawaii/Mainland trade lane, operating fully on LNG.
