Sirius Shipping of Sweden has taken delivery of its first 7999-dwt LNG-ready oil/chemical tanker Saturnus from the Avic Dingheng in China.

It is the first of a pair ordered by the Swedish company in September 2016.

The company said in its statement that the Evolution concept development started six years ago and the delivery of Saturnus marks the materialization of the objectives set out in the concept. The concept was developed together with the marine engineering company FKAB.

Saturnus will after the delivery enter into a time charter contract for Esso Norway and will be trading along the Norwegian coast.

The Evolution vessels are also designed with an engine prepared for LNG operation to meet future environmental demands. Preparations in terms of stability and deck enforcement have also been made for fitting two LNG tanks onboard, Sirius said in a statement.

Saturnus will join the rest of the Sirius fleet under Swedish flag and homeport will be Donsö, where the family owned Sirius Shipping is located.
