Fratelli Cosulich takes delivery of second LNG bunkering ship in China

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

According to a social media post by Fratelli Cosulich, the 5,300-dwt dual-fueled LNG bunkering vessel, Paolina Cosulich, set sail from the CIMC SOE yard on February 27.

The 113 metes long LNG bunkering vessel will serve a two-year charter deal with PETCO Trading Labuan (PTLCL), a trading arm of Malaysia’s Petronas.

CIMC SOE launched this LNG bunkering vessel in June last year.

The bunkering vessel features two type C bi-lobe LNG tanks with a cargo capacity of 8,200 cubic meters of LNG.

It is fitted with Wartsila’s dual-fuel technology.

In addition to LNG, Paolina Cosulich can provide 500 metric tons of Marine Gas Oil (MGO), providing flexibility to accommodate various fuel requirements.

This vessel is a sister ship to Alice Cosulich, Fratelli Cosulich’s first LNG bunkering ship.

In October 2023, Fratelli Cosulich took delivery of Alice Cosulich.

This newbuild serves a charter deal Fratelli Cosulich signed with Dutch LNG supplier Titan.
