PIL continues its Journey toward Reducing its Carbon Footprint


Pacific International Lines (PIL) is pleased to announce the award of a contract today to Yangzijiang Shipbuilding for the construction of four 8,000 TEU Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) dual-fuel container vessels. These vessels will each be equipped with an ammonia intermediate-ready fuel tank. The four vessels will be delivered progressively in 2025.

This contract award follows PIL’s earlier contract to build four 14,000 TEU LNG dual-fuel vessels announced in March this year.

Mr Lars Kastrup, the CEO of PIL, said, “We have decided to place an order for an additional four 8,000 TEU LNG dual-fuel vessels for two key reasons. Firstly, this is part of our ongoing efforts to optimise and renew our assets for greater operational efficiency. The new vessels will complement our existing fleet and support us in enhancing our connectivity to meet our customers’ needs better. Secondly, we have identified LNG as a commercially viable transition fuel solution, and the new vessels, which will once again be LNG dual-fuel and ammonia ready, will contribute towards achieving our decarbonisation goal of attaining net zero-carbon emissions by 2050.”
