New LPG Carrier Joins Unique Shipping’s Fleet

Hong Kong-based Unique Shipping Group has christened its new 84,000 LPG carrier, Oriental Jubilee, in Ulsan, South Korea. 

The 225-meter Oriental Jubilee was built by Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI). Prior to the delivery, the vessel made its maiden voyage to the Persian Gulf in mid-June.

The next LPG carrier in the series is slated for delivery in September 2017.

Oriental Jubilee is the first vessel to be awarded the DNV GL Scrubber Ready notation.

The vessel has been prepared for the installation of a hybrid scrubber system based on an existing design and technology. The unit can also be connected with multiple exhaust gas inlets from the ships’ main engine, three diesel engines and the boiler, DNV GL said.

“The system was chosen because of its operating flexibility. It enables wash water to be discharged into the sea in open loop mode, but also includes a liquid recirculation system in order to operate in closed loop mode. This is important if you operate in fresh water or low-alkalinity areas, as well as in areas, where discharging wash water is prohibited,” Swee Yin Wong, Senior Surveyor at DNV GL’s Ulsan station in Korea, said.

Established in 1966 as a private shipowning and management operation, Unique Shipping has now been developed into a medium-size shipping group in the Asia Pacific region. Its fleet consists of 14 vessels, including one Capesize bulk carrier, four product oil tankers, three product/chemical tankers, and six LPG carriers.

Ferries Asia Summit

Propelling Regional Waterway Connectivity & Fleet-wide Operational Excellence

Ferry travel is in the limelight. The potential for driving tourism growth is immense – and for archipelago nations battling with urban congestion, ferry services pose a clean, efficient alternative in everyday public transport. But high-profile ferry accidents have brought ever greater attention to safety regulations for Asia’s maritime travel industry.

Amid these circumstances, how can vessel operators cope with ever-tightening safety requirements, while making the right decisions at the right time to capture rising demand? What are the smartest ways to improve service reliability and fleet quality, that maximize operating and capital spend? What are the industry’s best-practices for sustainable growth, and how can they be achieved?

Play your part! Join us at the Ferries Asia Summit 2017 to push forward the regional debate on making Asia’s ferry industry more progressive, safe, and commercially sustainable.
