Furetank’s new LNG-powered tanker wrapping up maiden voyage

Furetank’s new LNG-powered tanker Fure Viten has almost completed its maiden voyage from China to Europe.

The 16,300 dwt medium-sized tanker with a load capacity of 20,300 cubic meters has arrived offshore Rotterdam on Friday, according to data by the port of Rotterdam. It should enter the port later during the day.

To remind, Sweden’s Furetank took delivery of the dual-fueled product and chemical tanker at China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in June.

After that, the Petronas-chartered Avenir Advantage bunkered the newbuild vessel in the port of Pasir Guadang, Malaysia.

Prior to arriving offshore Rotterdam, the vessel stopped in Spain’s Barcelona, Furetank said in an update earlier this week, adding the vessel would head to the final port of its maiden voyage, Rotterdam.

Furetank’s vessel has two small LNG tanks with a total capacity of 600 cbm. The ship features Wartsila’s LNG propulsion but also battery backup.

It is the eighth and final FKAB-designed ice-class ship Sweden’s Gothia Tanker Alliance had ordered at China Merchants Jinling Shipyard. They are all 149 meters long and 22.8 meters wide.

Moreover, Furetank owns four and commercially operates all of these vessels.

In June, the Swedish shipowner also said it was in negotiations to secure biogas for its fleet of LNG-powered tankers as it looks to further slash emissions.
