A team of representatives from BW LPG, yard, Class and engine manufacturers meet at Yiu Lian dockyard in Shenzhen, China.
BW Gemini and her team, led by Stig Solheim, is at Yiu Lian shipyard in China. The team has taken a picture to capture a special moment for all of us at BW LPG - the start of pioneering work to retrofit a vessel with an LPG dual-fuel propulsion engine. When complete, BW Gemini will be the world's first vessel with this technology onboard.
Not captured in this picture are countless hours of hard work by colleagues and business partners in research and trials, sacrifices made to travel amidst a pandemic, and the conviction that this is an important step towards decarbonization of the shipping industry. And of course, broad smiles behind the masks. We are staying safe while advancing technology!
