Hafnia, CSSC Shipping take delivery of fourth LNG-fueled tanker in China

China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) delivered the fourth and final LNG-powered LR2 tanker to a joint venture of compatriot CSSC Shipping and Singapore’s Hafnia.

GSI said in a statement that the delivery ceremony for the 110,000-dwt LNG-dual fuel crude oil and product tanker, Hafnia Lillesand, took place on February 28.

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

CSSC’s GSI delivered the first LNG-powered tanker, Hafnia Languedoc, in March last year, Hafnia Loire in May, and Hafnia Larvik in October.

The first two tankers serve France’s TotalEnergies under charter deals, while Hafnia Larvik and Hafnia Lillesand will serve Norway’s Equinor 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 in two type C tannks, the vessels have a range of 13,500 nautical miles when sailing on LNG at 14.5 knots.
