The 16,300 dwt vessels will be built to a design developed by FKAB together with Furetank. The ships will fulfill the Tier III rules and have dual fuel/LNG propulsion including LNG in port consumption, according to the Swedish partners.

The sister vessels are scheduled for delivery between 2018 and 2019.
