Shanghai-based Jiangnan Shipyard has added a contract for two LNG-fuelled pure car/truck carrier (PCTC) newbuildings to its order backlog.

SAIC Anji Logistics, the shipping arm of Chinese automaker SAIC Motor, has picked the China State Shipbuilding Corp (CSSC)-controlled shipyard to construct the 7,600-ceu newbuildings.

Shipbuilding market sources said Jiangnan and China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (CMJL) were the only two shipbuilding companies that participated in a tender held by SAIC Anji in August for the newbuildings.
