Sanoyas Shipbuilding has become the latest yard to offer LNG-fueled tonnage with a design for a woodchip carrier that can burn the greener fuel.

The mid-sized Japanese shipbuilder has positioned the LNG tanks in the stern section, aft of the living quarters so as not to sacrifice cargo capacity.

The builder also made effective use of internal space, by locating the LNG fuel supply as close as possible to the engine room, reported Braemar ACM.
