The Parsifal tankers will transport mineral oils between Antwerp, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and the Rhine network.

Concordia Damen says it would will begin construction of the tankers in December this year with the delivery of the first vessel scheduled in November 2021.

After that, the yard will deliver one vessel each month, completing the order by December 2024.
