Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC), a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation, said the world's first LNG-fueled very large crude carrier (VLCC) has completed its sea trials in Chinese waters.
The Yuan Rui Yang is a VLCC that COSCO Shipping ordered as a standard fuel ship. However, COSCO signed a supplemental agreementat the start of 2020 with DSIC to use LNG-fueled power for its vessel. CCS classed the vessel.
Last week, the ship started its sea trials in Chinese waters, after completing the construction phase.
