E&S Tankers takes delivery of third LNG-powered vessel

Hamburg-based E&S Tankers, a joint venture of Essberger Tankers and Stolt Tankers, has taken delivery of the LNG-powered chemical tanker, Eberhart Essberger.

E&S Tankers announced the delivery of the 6,600-dwt vessel, the third of four LNG-powered newbuilds, in a social media post.

China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Yangzhou) built the ship.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, the vessel is on its maiden voyage from China to Europe.

E&S Tankers took delivery of the first vessel in this batch, Liselotte Essberger, in August last year, and after that it took delivery of the second vessel, John T. Essberger.

In December, the JV christened Liselotte Essberger in Hamburg. John T. Essberger is expected to arrive in Germany later this month, its AIS data shows.

Germany’s John T. Essberger ordered in total four LNG-powered chemical tankers in 2021 saying that E&S Tankers will operate the vessels to initiate its fleet renewal.

E&S Tankers expects to take delivery of the fourth vessel, Heinrich Essberger, in February.

Designed by FKAB, the stainless steel parcel tankers, IMO Type II, have LNG dual-fuel propulsion and certified Finnish/Swedish 1A ice class.

Besides dual-fuel propulsion, the ships also feature full battery/UPS power, preventing blackouts.
