Fratelli Cosulich takes delivery of first LNG bunkering ship in China

China’s Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering (CIMC SOE) has handed over the first LNG bunkering vessel to Italian shipping group Fratelli Cosulich.

The shipbuilder said in a statement on Thursday it has hosted the delivery ceremony for the 5,300-dwt dual-fueled LNG bunkering vessel, Alice Cosulich.

Alice Cosulich completed its sea trials in August and is the first of two sister vessels CIMC SOE built for Fratelli Cosulich.

The shipbuilder launched this ship in March and installed the vessel’s two type C bi-lobe LNG tanks in November last year.

In addition, the vessel features a cargo handling system by Wartsila and a Schottel propulsion system.

This 113 meters long vessel with a capacity of 8,200 cbm of LNG and 500 cbm of MGO is expected to start operating in Europe in the fourth quarter of this year, Titan previously said.

As per the sister ship, CIMC SOE launched Paolina Cosulich in June.
