Quebec City-headquartered shipper Desgagnés has taken delivery of Rossi A. Desgagnés the last in the series of LNG-fueled oil-chemical tankers. 

The Turkish Besiktas shipyard in Yalova, near Istanbul, completed the construction of the vessel build based on an original concept developed by Desgagnés.

The shipper said that Rossi A. Desgagnés joins the Gaïa Desgagnés acquired last week by the company for a total consideration of over C$100 million ($74.7 million).

Following the delivery of the Rossi A. Desgagnés the company now owns five dual-fuel/LNG tankers.

The Rossi A. Desgagnés is double-hulled and holds a Polar 7 ice class, as it is capable of navigating in ice-laden waters. With a deadweight of 15,000 tons at 7.8 meters draft, it has the capacity to hold up to 17,505 cubic meters at 98 percent capacity. It is equipped with a Wärtsilä 5RT-flex 50DF engine.

The Rossi A. Desgagnés represents an investment exceeding $50 million, of which almost $9 million are solely dedicated to the dual-fuel/LNG motorization.

The vessel will soon be leaving Turkey and is expected to arrive in Canada in mid-June.
