Furetank takes delivery of Swedish LNG-powered tanker

China Merchants Jinling shipyard has delivered the seventh LNG-powered vessel ordered by Sweden’s Gothia Tanker Alliance.

Swedish shipowner Furetank, a member of the alliance, will commercially manage the 17,999 dwt ice-class 1A vessel named Fure Vinga.

The dual-fuel vessel will run on both LNG and LBG and will mostly serve Furetank’s clients in the Baltic region but also northwest Europe.

To remind, the Chinese yard previously known as AVIC Dingheng Shipbuilding launched the vessel in August last year.

The alliance members ordered in total eight dual-fueled product and chemical tankers at the yard.

Besides Furetank that took delivery of four of these ships, the other owners include Alvtank and Thun Tankers. Alvtank received the sixth ship out of this batch back in September 2019.

The medium-sized tankers feature LNG propulsion and battery backup as well.

Each of the FKAB-designed ice class ships is 149 meters long and 22.8 meters wide.
