Wuhu launches Donsotank’s 2nd LNG-powered vessel

China’s Wuhu yard has launched the second Donsotank’s LNG-powered product and chemical tanker.

The yard held the launching ceremony for the 22,000-dwt Pacifico on Thursday, Swedish privately-owned shipping firm Donsotank, said.

To remind, Donsotank ordered two FKAB-designed LNG-powered tankers in December 2018. Wuhu launched the first vessel in January.

Both of the ice-class ships will have Warstila LNG propulsion but Wuhu will also equip them with a battery pack.

In addition, the 167.3 meters long vessels feature an F-Bow design hull optimized to withstand harsh weather conditions.

The Chinese yard claims the vessels to be the world’s first hybrid chemical tankers. It will deliver them during this year.
