GSI launches SFL’s LNG-fueled PCTC

China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) has launched SFL Corporation’s LNG dual-fuel pure car and truck carrier, Thor Highway. This vessel will serve a charter with Japan’s K Line.

CSSC’s GSI launched the vessel with a capacity of 7,000 units on October 24, it said in a statement.

GSI said this is the fourth LNG-powered PCTC being built for John Fredriksen-controlled SFL.

In September, the shipbuilder handed over the LNG dual-fuel vessel, Emden, first of four SFL’s PCTCs.

Emden and the second PCTC named Wolfsburg will both serve German giant Volkswagen Group under charter deals.

The other two vessels, Thor Highway and Odin Highway, will work for Japan’s K Line under charter deals, starting in 2024.

The LNG dual-fuel ship have a length of 200 meters, a width of 38 meters, and a design draft of 8.6 meters.

Each vessel will be powered by MAN ME-GI two-stroke main engine and feature two 1.675-cbm LNG storage tanks provided by MAN Cryo, a unit of Germany’s MAN Energy Solutions.
