CIMC SOE bags order for two LNG-powered containerships

China’s Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering has secured an order to build two LNG dual-fuel feeder containerships.

According to a statement by CIMC SOE, the ships will have a capacity of 1,450 teu and the Chinese firm will build them for an unidentified “overseas customer”.

CIMC SOE said the 2+2 order is worth more than 1 billion yuan ($140 million).

The vessels will feature MAN’s high-pressure dual-fuel main engines and type C LNG tanks.

CIMC SOE said that a German firm designed the ships, while the shipbuilder will design the LNG gas supply system (FGSS) in-house.

This is the first order for LNG-powered containerships for CIMC SOE.

The shipbuilder already built small-scale LNG bunkering and supply ships for Avenir LNG, and is constructing two LNG bunkering vessels for Italy’s Fratelli Cosulich, as well as three such ships for Canada’s Seaspan ULC and one for CNOOC.

Besides these vessels, CIMC SOE also has on order three dual-fuel liquid ethylene gas (LEG) carriers from Germany’s Hartmann.
