NYK Line has added an order for one more 86,700-cbm LPG/liquified ammonia carrier at Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) in Japan.

The order is the seventh in a series of VLGCs that NYK Line is building at KHI’s Sakaide shipyard, five of which are capable of carrying both LPG and ammonia.

NYK said the design gives the ship the “flexibility to respond to various trade patterns”.
