Swiss Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has denied reports saying the company is chartering six LNG-fueled container vessel newbuilds.

According to a recent DynaLiners report, MSC agreed to charter the 15,000 TEU LNG-powered ultra large container vessels (ULCVs) for a period of fifteen years from Singapore’s Eastern Pacific Shipping.

However, on September 6, MSC referred to the above information as “incorrect”.

As World Maritime News reported in October 2018, Eastern Pacific has a total of eleven 15,000 TEU containerships on order at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries shipyard in South Korea.

The units are scheduled to be delivered between 2019 and 2022, according to data provided by VesselsValue.
