United European Car Carriers, equally owned by NYK and Wallenius Lines, took delivery of the LNG-fueled pure car and truck carrier from Kawasaki Heavy Industries on September 29 at the NACKS shipyard in Nantong, China.

The PCTC named Auto Eco, is set to arrive in North Europe by the end of November, is the first of two sister vessels to be delivered, NYK Line said in its statement on Friday.

Both vessels feature dual-fuel engines that can use either liquefied natural gas or heavy fuel oil and marine gas oil.

These vessels will be put into service in Europe, where strict sulphur emission regulations have been introduced, and both have a Finnish/Swedish ice class 1A super vessel, thus allowing for full-year trading in the Baltic area, where ice is common in winter.

UECC’s second LNG-fueled, the TBN Auto Energy, has been launched in June and is scheduled for delivery on November 28.

Both vessels have a capacity of approximately 3800 cars, including 6000 square meters of high and heavy cargo on 10 decks with a maximum cargo weight of 160 mt.
