Furetank adds two dual-fuel tankers at Jinling Shipyard

Furetank is returning to China Merchants’ Jinling Shipyard in Yangzhou for the construction of two dual-fuel tankers, brining the total to six this year alone.

The 17,999 dwt tankers are the latest contribution to the series of sister vessels designed with a special focus on energy efficiency and minimum environmental impact, all commercially operated by Furetank.

Having dual-fuel capability and run-on LNG/bio-gas, the vessels are designed with a battery hybrid solution and with  features that reduce fuel and energy consumption.

The two vessels are scheduled to be delivered in fall 2024 and spring 2025.

“The fact that we have been able to build 15 vessels of the same design shows that they fulfill a need in our market. When we replace old tankers with these top-modern ships it makes a major difference for climate, environment and human health,” said Lars Hцglund, CEO of Furetank.

Jinling Shipyard has already delivered eight vessels to Furetank, remaining five are being constructed. With the addition of two newbuilds, Furetank has ordered fifteen Vinga series vessels from Jinling.
