A keel laying ceremony was held this week for a tanker with liquefied natural gas (LNG) propulsion at China’s Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding.

The intermediate product and chemical tanker is the fourth of six LNG-fueled vessels ordered by the partners in the Swedish Gothia Tanker Alliance, Furetank, Älvtank and Erik Thun.

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.
