China’s Bank of Communications Financial Leasing Co (Bocomm Leasing) has taken delivery of another LNG-powered tanker which will serve a unit of LNG giant Shell.

CSSC’s Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) delivered the 110,000-dwt crude oil and product tanker, Proteus Ingrid, on June 8, it said in a statement.

According to GSI, this is the seventh out of eight LNG-powered tankers the shipbuilder is constructing for Bocomm Leasing.

The yard delivered the first ship in May last year and the sixth vessel, Proteus Elsie, in March this year.

Bocomm Leasing ordered twelve dual-fuel tankers in April 2020 at two CSSC yards for about $54 million per each vessel.

Besides these eight ships, CSSC’s Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (SWS) already delivered four tankers.

The ships are 249.95 meters long, 44 meters wide, and they feature two type C LNG fuel tanks, as well as a WinGD dual-fuel main engine.

All of these LNG-powered vessels will serve Shell under charter deals.
