RETROFITTING OUR VESSELS TO REDUCE OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

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:

  1. Emits 97% less carbon during construction;
  2. Takes 2 months, versus 2 years to complete; and
  3. Does not add unneeded shipping capacity to the market. 

Retrofitting offers significant environmental and economic benefits.

But we must invest time and money to realize these benefits. We see these as worthwhile investments for a Better World. 

There is much more we can do. And we will. Powered by LPG, these vessels will propel us towards a Better World.
