NEWBUILD: First to be ready for LNG

On 27 November 2014 United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) named the first ever LNG-ready ultra-large container vessel. Sajir is the first vessel in UASC’s current newbuilding programme, which comprises 17 of the world’s most eco-efficient vessels.

With a capacity of 15,000TEU (A15), the DNV GL classed vessel is the largest and most eco-efficient in this capacity range. Sajir will start operating on the Asia-North Europe route after delivery. Ten further A15 vessels and six 18,800TEU (A18) container ships will be delivered by Hyundai Heavy Industries to UASC by mid-2016.

H.E. Salem Ali Al Zaabi, Chairman of UASC, said: ‘At UASC we see efficiency as a key competitive differentiator in an increasingly competitive market. Sajir embodies this ethos and, as the first of 17 vessels in our current newbuilding program, represents an important milestone in the evolution of UASC.’
