Wuhu hands over Langh Ship’s second LNG-powered vessel

China’s Wuhu Shipyard has handed over the second of three LNG-fueled multi-purpose vessels to Finnish shipping firm Langh Ship.

Wuhu said in a statement on Tuesday it recently delivered the 7,800-dwt multi-purpose dry cargo vessel, Olivia.

The naming ceremony for the vessel took place on January 22.

This is the first ship Wuhu delivered in 2023 and the second it built for the Finnish firm.

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

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.

The shipbuilder delivered the first LNG-powered vessel in this batch, Lovisa, in November last year.

Lang Ship recently said that Olivia’s sister vessel, Lovisa, reached Europe in early January and has entered Outokumpu liner service between Finland and the Netherlands.

Finland-based stainless steel producer Outokumpu chartered all three 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 third ship in following months.
