Guangxi Xijiang Development Investment Group Co., Ltd. a subsidiary of Guangxi Xijiang Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. and Guigang Dragon Logistics Co., have signed a contract to buildĀ  three 5,000 dwt and two 1,600 dwt liquefied natural gas (LNG) and diesel powered vessels which will be the first dual-fuel vessels to operate on the inland rivers of Guangxi.

Compared with similar ships operating on diesel alone, fuel costs are expected to be 20% less while also achieving significantly reducing overall operating costs.

Guangxi Xijiang Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. has been vigorously promoting conversion to dual-fuel propulsion for Guangxi River vessels, in southern China.
