Friday, January 8, 2021 

FKAB Marine Design of Sweden says it has been selected to provide basic and detail design for two 21,000m3 bitumen tankers, ordered by Continental Bitumen to be constructed at at Wuhu Shipyard in China

The design, for a Bitumen and Oil Product tanker with independent cargo tanks for bitumen and asphalten, compasses Continental Bitumen’s high quality requirements with a focus on low environmental impact, long-term operation, high flexibility, and very low fuel consumption, using FKAB’s proven modern lines with F-Bow.

The propulsion system consists of a four stroke DF main engine with CP-propeller using LNG/LBG as main fuels. It is designed with full battery/UPS power, preventing from black outs.

FKAB's Sweden and China offices will be involved in the project.
