Furetank orders new climate friendly tanker for a green fleet

Feb 03 2022


Furetank has signed a contract for a new dual-fuel tanker. It will become number nine in the Vinga series of globally top-performing sister vessels when it comes to energy efficiency and climate footprint.

The 17,999 dwt vessel will be built by China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Yangzhou (former AVIC). It is the latest contribution to the series of eight sister vessels designed with special focus on minimal impact on the environment. Furetank owns four of them and commercially operates all.
 
The vessels all have dual-fuel capability and run on LNG/LBG. They are designed with a battery hybrid solution and several innovative features that reduce fuel and energy consumption resulting in extensively lower emissions of CO2, sulphur oxide, nitrogen oxide and hazardous particles.
 
The new ship will also be fully equipped to operate cargo pumps with 6.6 kV high voltage shore power, to reduce emissions even further as soon as ports offer the opportunity. It has a cargo capacity of 20,306 cubic meters in 12 epoxy coated cargo tanks, ice class 1A and an efficient cargo handling system. A flexible cargo pump and line arrangement ensuring safe and efficient cargo operations with reduced port-turnaround time. 
 
– This is yet another step forward on our journey towards a fleet consisting entirely of climate friendly vessels. Furetank want to be an environmental friendly and leading actor within the segment. With this newbuilding we will continue to implement all available technologies to do the best we can – now. It feels especially good to place the order in these unstable pandemic times; we have a strong belief in the future, says Lars Höglund, CEO of Furetank.
 
The vessel is scheduled to be delivered from the shipyard in January 2024. The agreement with the yard also includes an option for further vessels.
