Norwegian shipping group G2 Ocean said that its owner and pool partner, Grieg Maritime Group, has exercised its option for two additional ammonia-ready open hatch vessels, which will be delivered in 2026. 


In June 2023, G2 Ocean reported that it would strengthen its fleet with the addition of a 55,889 dwt semi-open vessel and up to four ammonia-ready 82,300 dwt open hatch vessels. The ammonia-ready vessels will be built by CSSC Huangpu Wenchong Longxue in China.  

Equipped with dual-fuel engines, 120-tonne crane capacity, tweendecks, a battery package to make peak-shaving a possibility and shore power options, the vessels will be the largest, most environmentally friendly, and technologically advanced carriers in the G2 Ocean fleet. 

“The design and size of the vessels make them very flexible, allowing us to meet the requirements of our customers worldwide. With this delivery, we are also able to take another important step on our decarbonisation journey and our target of becoming net-zero by 2050,” said Arthur English, ceo at G2 Ocean.
