Swedish shipping firm Donsotank has ordered two additional LNG-powered oil and chemical tankers from China’s Wuhu yard.
According to a statement by Donsotank, Wuhu will deliver the LNG dual-fuel 22,500-dwt vessels in the second and fourth quarters of 2025.
The shipping firm did not provide the price tag of the deal.
The construction and equipment of these vessels will follow the same blueprints as Donsotank’s previous hybrid vessels Prospero and Pacifico, it said.
With dual fuel propulsion (LNG-LBG/diesel), 500 kWh battery pack, shore
power connection, SCR-Catamiser, and a waste heat recovery system, Donsotank said the vessels will enable the firm to achieve “cleaner and more efficient” operations.
Donsotank said the vessels will have a cargo capacity of 27,800 cbm and they will be 167 meters long and 26.5 meters wide with a draft of 9.4 meters.
In addition, the LNG-powered tankers will have Wartsila 10V31 DF engine.
Designed by FKAB, both of the ice-class 1A ships have Wartsila LNG propulsion and Wuhu also equipped them with a battery pack.
