Wuhu starts work on first LNG-powered vessel for Langh Ship

China’s Wuhu Shipyard has started building the first out of three LNG-powered multi-purpose vessels for Finnish shipping firm Langh Ship.

To mark the construction start, Wuhu held a steel-cutting ceremony on Thursday, it said in a statement.

In November, Wuhu revealed this order for the 7,800-dwt multi-purpose dry cargo vessels with Finnish/Swedish 1A ice class.

Classed by DNV and designed by SDARI, the LNG-powered vessels will be 119.90 meters long.

Also, they will feature the 9L34 dual-fuel main engine from Finland’s Wartsila.

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 expects to take delivery of the first vessel in mid-2023, followed by the other two at close intervals.
