Wuhu delivers Langh Ship’s first LNG-powered vessel

China’s Wuhu Shipyard has delivered the first of three LNG-powered multi-purpose vessels to Finnish shipping firm Langh Ship.

Wuhu held the naming and delivery ceremony for the 7,800-dwt multi-purpose dry cargo vessel, Lovisa, on November 1, it said in a statement.

This is the first ship Wuhu built for the Finnish firm.

In November 2021, Wuhu announced this order for the three vessels with Finnish/Swedish 1A ice class.

After that, the shipbuilder started building the first vessel in June 2022 and launched it in May this year.

Classed by DNV and designed by SDARI, the LNG-powered vessels are 119.90 meters long and 16.50 meters wide.

Each vessel features one 9L34 dual-fuel main engine from Finland’s Wartsila, as well as FGSS from Korean maker Gas Entec.

Finland-based stainless steel producer Outokumpu chartered these LNG-powered vessels from Langh Ship.

The vessels are set to operate between Outokumpu’s main port, Tornio, Finland, and its continental hub Terneuzen, the Netherlands.

Moreover, they will transport semi-finished and finished steel products to customers and for further processing.

Langh Ship will take delivery of the next two ships in following months.
