Sirius said then that the vessels will feature a two-stroke main engine compatible to be converted to run on liquefied natural gas with two LNG tanks mounted on the deck.

According to Sirius Shipping, once delivered the firsst vessel will go on a time-charter to ESSO Norway.

Both of the vessels are expected to be delivered in 2018.
