CIMC SOE installs tanks on first LNG bunkering ship for Fratelli Cosulich

China’s Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering (CIMC SOE) has installed the storage tanks on the first out of two LNG bunkering vessels it is building for Italian shipping group Fratelli Cosulich.

CIMC SOE announced the completion of lifting operations for two type C bi-lobe LNG tanks in a statement issued on Tuesday.

The Chinese shipbuilder will deliver this 5,300-dwt dual-fueled LNG bunkering vessel (S1058) with a capacity of 8,200 cbm next year.

It features a cargo handling system by Wartsila and a Schottel propulsion system.

Fratelli Cosulich placed the order for this 113 meters long vessel at CIMC SOE for about $45 million in May last year.

In addition to this ship, Fratelli Cosulich exercised an option for the second LNG bunkering vessel last year. CIMC SOE will deliver this vessel in 2024.

Besides these LNG bunkering ships, Fratelli Cosulich is looking to order one ammonia bunkering vessel at CIMC SOE as well.
