SFL takes delivery of second LNG-powered PCTC chartered by Volkswagen

China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) delivered SFL Corporation’s LNG dual-fuel pure car and truck carrier, Wolfsburg.

CSSC’s GSI handed over the vessel with a capacity of 7,000 units to John Fredriksen-controlled SFL on November 27.

The shipbuilder says this is the second LNG-powered PCTC it has ever built.

SFL ordered in total four LNG-powered PCTCs with a capacity of 7,000 units at GSI.

In September, GSI delivered the first LNG-powered PCTC in this batch, Emden.

Both of these PCTCs will go on a long-term charter to German giant Volkswagen Group.

In addition, 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 ships have a length of 200 meters, a width of 38 meters, and a design draft of 8.6 meters.

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