Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Co., Ltd., China State Shipbuilding Trading Co., Ltd., and a joint party represented by China National Petroleum International Co., Ltd. signed a liquefied natural gas (LNG) transportation project in Shanghai Memorandum on the construction of 3 LNG carriers of 174,000 cubic meters. This is after three actual ships were put into construction in June last year, central enterprises such as PetroChina, China Shipbuilding Corporation and other central enterprises have once again joined hands to build China's LNG transportation industry chain, contribute to the protection of national energy security, and continue to write a new chapter in "National Shipbuilding". The project adopts the fourth-generation "Changxing Series" large-scale 174,000 cubic meter LNG ship design independently developed by Hudong Zhonghua.

The ship has a total length of 295 meters, a width of 45 meters, a depth of 26.25 meters, and a speed of 19.5 knots. It adopts the world's latest generation of dual-fuel low-speed propulsion power system to further optimize performance and reduce energy consumption. The daily fuel consumption is less than 100 tons. This type of ship is equipped with advanced environmental protection devices, whether it is operated in gas or oil mode, it can meet the most stringent emission standards of the International Maritime Organization, and its technical performance, environmental protection indicators and reliability requirements have reached the world's first-class level.

The policy is to actively expand LNG’s own capacity. The signing of the memorandum on the construction of three LNG ships will help the "Blue Sky Project" and accelerate the construction of "Beautiful China".

This is a strong contribution to the sustainable development of China’s shipbuilding industry and the national energy strategy. The support also reflects the firm confidence in the innovation and development of China State Shipbuilding Corporation. As the core shipbuilding enterprise of CSSC and the only large-scale LNG carrier construction base in China, Hudong-Zhonghua has always carried forward the spirit of pioneering and deeply cultivated the global LNG industry chain market, especially in the large-scale independent design and manufacturing technology of LNG storage and transportation equipment Has a solid strength in terms of quality and efficiency. After 20 years of hard work, Hudong Zhonghua has delivered a total of 24 large LNG carriers. Hudong Zhonghua will continue to strictly control quality, strengthen lean management, continue scientific and technological innovation, research and development, design, and construction of high technology, high added value, and high quality with world advanced level and market influence on the basis of summing up past experience.
