TotalEnergies announced back in October 2020 that four LNG dual-fuel 110,000-dwt will join its time-chartered fleet in 2023.

The firm also chartered two vessels from Vista Shipping, a joint venture of BW’s Hafnia and CSSC Shipping.

CSSC’s GSI already delivered these two LNG-powered tankers, Hafnia Languedoc and Hafnia Loire.

These 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.
