Chinese shipyard scores Hartmann LPG order

Chinese shipbuilder Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering has won an order to build LPG tankers for Germany’s Hartmann Group.

The contract includes the construction of three 5000 cubic meter LPG ships and additional order for two vessels.

CIMC SOE, a unit of CIMC ENRIC, claims that the vessels will be the world’s first dual-fueled full-pressure LPG carriers.

The vessels will feature MAN’s LPG dual-fueled main engine.

CIMC said the duo signed the deal via a video conference due to the current situation related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The two companies previously joined forces on a number of projects including the liquefied ethylene gas (LEG) carrier Gaschem Beluga.
