GEFO has signed a contract for up to four 7000 DWT LNG-enabled chemical tankers with Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding Co. Ltd.

The company has ordered two FKAB-designed stainless steel chemical tanker type II and product tankers from Avic Dingheng, which are equipped with 14 cargo tanks. The contract allows for another two tankers.

The propulsion system consists of a four-stroke main engine with CPP that is able to handle LNG and is dual fuel ready for gas and methanol, FKAB said.

The vessel is designed for very low fuel consumption at eco speed of 12.5 knots at design draught and includes output from its shaft generator.

The FKAB design is based on GEFO’s requirements of long-term operation, high flexibility and very low fuel consumption.

The design also specifically accounts for the harsh weather conditions in NW-European waters and is certified for Finnish/Swedish ice class, ICE 1A.
