James Fisher names LNG-fuelled tanker
James Fisher and Sons, a marine services provider, on January 10 announced the christening of its latest LNG dual-fuel chemical tanker, Lady Maria Fisher.
The christening of Lady Maria Fisher follows the introduction of Sir John Fisher and has been developed to the same specification. These vessels have been built by China Merchants Jinling (CMJL) shipyard. Lady Maria Fisher entered the fleet in early 2023, following her sister vessel Sir John Fisher in November 2022.
Notably, the vessel boasts the capability to achieve a 45% reduction in carbon emissions, accompanied by a remarkable 93% decrease in nitrogen oxides (NOx) and a 45% reduction in sulfur oxides (Sox).
Since entering service in early 2023, Lady Maria Fisher and her sister vessel, Sir John Fisher, have been servicing the needs of James Fisher's customer, P66. The vessels have been deployed around the coastline of Northern Europe.
