Tarbit’s LNG-powered duo nearing completion in China

China’s Jiangsu New Yangzi, a unit of Yangzijiang Shipbuilding, is continuing to progress with works on two LNG-powered chemical tankers it is building for Sweden’s Tarbit.

The yard said in a statement it has launched the second vessel in this batch, Bit Wind, on November 5.

Earlier in September, Jiangsu New Yangzi undocked the first 13,000-dwt tanker, Bit Wave.

Tarbit placed the order for these two LNG-powered vessels at Yangzijiang Shipbuilding in December 2019.

Subsequently, China’s Gloryholder Liquefied Gas Machinery said last year it had secured an order to supply LNG fuel systems for the two tankers.

The contract included the design and manufacture of double vacuum insulated LNG fuel tanks with integrated tank connection space and bunkering station modules.

Classed by Bureau Veritas, the vessels will feature ice class 1A and a cargo capacity of 15,000 cbm, according to Tarbit.

Tarbit expects to take delivery of the dual-fuel ships in early 2022. Once in operation, they will run on LNG or LBG but also fuel oil.
