Kumiai Navigation has ordered one dual-fuelled very large gas carrier (VLGC) at Japan’s Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI).

The Japanese shipbuilder announced that the 86,700-cbm vessel will be built at its Sakaide yard and will be delivered in 2026.

KHI said the latest deal lifted Kumiai’s order tally for dual-fuel VLGC newbuildings at the shipyard to three.
