AET, a unit of the Malaysian shipping giant MISC, named its first LNG dual-fueled Aframax vessels, Eagle Brasilia and Eagle Bintulu at a ceremony held at the Samsung Heavy Industry (SHI) shipyard in Geoje, South Korea. 

Both vessels have been taken on long-term charter by Shell, primarily for operations in the Atlantic Basin, and will begin operating for the company from the fourth quarter of 2018.

The vessels are in compliance with NOx Tier III emission when operating in gas mode, AET said in a statement.

The vessels are equipped with conventional single screw propulsion with a two-stroke main engine, three auxiliary engines and two auxiliary boilers, all equipped for LNG dual fuel capability.

The vessel is equipped with two type-C 850 cbm tanks and has been designed to bunker the chilled fuel via a ship-to-ship transfer from an LNG bunkering vessel, and are capable of operating on LNG as fuel for 6,000 miles.
