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

China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) has delivered the third LNG-powered LR2 tanker to a joint venture of Singapore’s Hafnia and CSSC Shipping. This vessel will serve a charter with Norway’s Equinor.

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

This is the third 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. GSI launched this vessel in May this year.

The shipbuilder delivered the first LNG-powered tanker, Hafnia Languedoc, in March and held a naming ceremony for the second, Hafnia Loire, in May.

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

On the other hand, Hafnia Larvik and the fourth vessel Hafnia Lillesand will serve Equinor under charter deals.

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, according to Hafnia.
