Unique Shipping christens LPG carrier

Unique Shipping christens Scrubber Ready LPG carrier

Hong Kong-based Unique Shipping Group’s new vessel Oriental Jubilee has recently been christened at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard in Ulsan. 

According to the classification society DNV GL, the 84,000 cbm LPG carrier is the first vessel to be awarded the DNV GL “Scrubber Ready” notation.

Designed for global operation, the 225 m long Oriental Jubilee took its maiden voyage to the Persian Gulf in the middle of June. Its sister vessel is scheduled for delivery in 2017.

“The ‘Scrubber Ready’ notation enables us to make the necessary provisions in the design, so that the installation of a scrubber in the future is a more straightforward operation,” the senior management of the Hong-Kong-based Unique Shipping Group said in a statement.

The notation takes into account all the relevant factors for the installation of scrubbers, ranging from space and stability requirements, to fire safety, piping, corrosion resistance, and the effect on the main engine. This helps to reduce off-hire time and retrofitting costs if a scrubber system is fitted in the future, DNV GL.
