Hafnia, CSSC Shipping name second LNG-fueled tanker in China

China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) hosted a naming ceremony for the second LNG-powered LR2 tanker it built for a joint venture of Singapore’s Hafnia and CSSC Shipping.

GSI said in a statement that the naming ceremony for the 110,000-dwt LNG-dual fuel crude oil and product tanker, Hafnia Loire, took place on Monday.

This is the second LNG-powered Aframax-type LR2 vessel Hafnia, a unit of Singapore-based gas shipping giant BW, ordered back in 2020 via its Vista Shipping JV with CSSC’s financial leasing unit, CSSC Shipping.

CSSC’s GSI delivered the first LNG-powered tanker, Hafnia Languedoc, on March 15.

According to GSI, it will deliver Hafnia Loire on May 23.

Both of the tankers will serve France’s TotalEnergies under charter deals.

Moreover, the vessels are 250 meters long with 12 cargo tanks, enabling a carrying capacity of 110,000 dwt or 133,500 cbm.

Featuring LNG fuel capacity of 3,600 cbm, the vessels will have a range of 13,500 nautical miles when sailing on LNG at 14.5 knots.

Besides these two vessels, Vista Shipping also ordered two more LNG-powered LR2 tankers at GSI in 2021.

Following delivery in 2024, these two vessels will serve Norway’s Equinor under charter deals, according to Hafnia.
