Bureau Veritas classes Terntank's LNG-powered chemical tanker

Bureau Veritas said it has classed the 15,000 dwt LNG-powered chemical tanker, Ternsund, built for Terntank Rederi at Avic Dingheng, China.

The vessel has been delivered to Denmark’s Terntank Rederi at the end of June 2016.

The Ternsund is the first of a series of four ships all equipped with the Wärtsilä RT-flex50-D dual-fuel low-speed engine, Bureau Veritas said in its statement on Tuesday, adding that it is the first time such an engine has been installed in a vessel.

In early August the vessel became the first ever ship to take on LNG as bunker fuel in the port of Rotterdam.

Ternsund is an IMO Type 2 oil/chemical tanker able to carry nine grades of cargo in 16 different tanks. It will operate in North European waters under charter to Finnish North European Oil Trade (NEOT).

LNG as fuel is stored on board in 2 Type C tanks on deck containing 315-cbm of LNG each.
