Sweden's Furetank orders two more LNG-fuelled vessels
Swedish shipping company Furetank has signed a deal for two more LNG-fuelled tankers with China Merchants Jinling Shipyard, it said on September 23. With these orders, the company has ordered a total of six ships this year.
The vessels have the dual-fuel capability and run on LNG or LBG. They are designed with a battery hybrid solution and several features that reduce fuel and energy consumption, resulting in extensively lower emissions of CO2, sulphur oxide, nitrogen oxide and hazardous particles, the company said. They have a cargo capacity of 20,306 m3 in 12 epoxy-coated cargo tanks, ice class 1A and a cargo handling system.
The two vessels are scheduled to be delivered in fall 2024 and spring 2025.
