FIRST FKAB-DESIGNED 7000 DWT CHEMICAL TANKER LAUNCHED

Monday, July 6, 2020 

Swedish company FKAB Design says that the first of two 7000 dwt stainless steel chemical tankers built by Yangzhou Jinling Shipyard for German owner GEFO has been successfully launched

The design allowed for the pair to be made gas-ready to easier meet future fuel possibilities. However, the second in the series, currently under construction at the yard, will be delivered with dual-fuel LNG propulsion.

FKAB was involved in the design from the early concept stage, and its offices in Sweden and China carried out the basic design and detail design. The vessels were developed to GEFO’s high quality requirements with a focus on long-term operation, high flexibility, and very low fuel consumption. They feature FKAB's proven F-Bow design.
