At BW LPG, we commit to ambitious environmental targets.
Over decades, we’ve worked hard on ideas, big and small, to make our green ships even greener.
Making our green ships greener through retrofitting
One particularly big idea took years of collaboration to realize, the idea to pioneer the technology to power ships with LPG.
With LPG engines, we reduce greenhouse gas emissions, cut fuel costs, and gain operational efficiencies.
By retrofitting, we can reap benefits even before our vessels are on water.
Compared with a newbuild, retrofitting an existing ship:
- Emits 97% less carbon during construction;
- Takes 2 months, versus 2 years to complete; and
- Does not add unneeded shipping capacity to the market.
Retrofitting offers significant environmental and economic benefits.
