Swedish offshore and ice-breaking services provider Viking Supply Ships has, in partnership with funds managed by Borealis Maritime, inked a deal to purchase two LNG-fueled vessels currently under construction.

In addition to the partial ownership, the group has been awarded full operational and commercial management of the vessels by Borealis Maritime, Viking Supply Ships said in its statement on Friday.

The two new vessels are platform supply vessels (PSV) of Wartsila VS 4411 DF design and will be completed by Remontowa Shipbuilding in Gdansk, Poland.

The vessels are set for delivery from the shipyard in the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021, respectively.

Both vessels have dual fuel capabilities meaning they can run on LNG or MGO and will also come fully equipped with a battery pack solution which will further reduce consumption and emissions.
