Bonn-based TGE Marine Gas Engineering has secured a contract to provide equipment for nine LNG-powered Vinga tankers Swedish shipowner Furetank and partners ordered in China.
Furetank already owns four and commercially operates all of eight FKAB-designed ice-class product and chemical tankers under Sweden’s Gothia Tanker Alliance.
China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Yangzhou built these eight ships and will also construct the new nine 17,999-dwt vessels ordered by Furetank and Algoma as well as Erik Thun.
All Vinga vessels have dual-fuel capability and run on LNG/LBG or gasoil and have a battery hybrid solution.
TGE Marine said in a social media post the further nine contracts include the supply of LNG fuel gas systems for the Vinga series.
The firm, a part of Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding, did not reveal the price tag of the contract.
The Chinese yard will deliver the new ships between 2023 and 2025.
