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.
