Keppel Corporation (Keppel) announced that its indirect subsidiary, Keppel AmFELS, has secured a contract worth over US$400 million (approximately S$544 million) from Honolulu-based Pasha Hawaii for the construction of two Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) fueled containerships.

The dual fuel LNG vessels will be built to Keppel’s proprietary design with delivery of the first vessel expected in 1Q20, and the second vessel in 3Q20. Customised to Pasha Hawaii’s requirements, the new, 774-foot Jones Act vessels will be able to carry 2,525 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units), including a fully laden capacity of 500 45-foot containers, 400 refrigerated containers, and 300 40-foot dry containers, with a sailing speed of 23 knots.
