Exmar LPG, a joint venture between Exmar and Seapeak, has confirmed that a pair of 46,000 cbm gas carriers on order at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in South Korea will be powered by WinGD’s ammonia-fuelled X-DF-A engines.

The pair of LPG/NH3 carrier newbuildings will be powered by 52-bore X52DF-A engines. The dual-fuel engines will be delivered to the shipyard in Q2 2025 and will be among the first of WinGD’s ammonia-fuelled engines to enter service. The 46,000 cbm gas carriers are scheduled for delivery in early 2026. The engine builder is expected to be confirmed as Hyundai Heavy Industries Engine & Machinery Division (HHI-EMD).

The vessels will also feature a fuel supply system provided by Wärtsilä Gas Solutions. The vessels will be among the first oceangoing vessels to be propelled by dual-fuel ammonia engines, allowing for close to zero emissions trading when using ammonia.
