Two LNG bunkering vessels respectively launched and berthed by CIMC SOE on the same day


Recently, Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering Co., Ltd. ("CIMC SOE") of CIMC Enric held a ceremony to launch the first 8,200m3 liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel S1058 and berth the second bunkering vessel S1059, both of which are built for Fratelli Cosulich, the owner of these two vessels in Italy.

CIMC SOE currently has two 8,200m3 LNG bunkering vessels under construction. Since the signing of the contract and the commencement of construction, CIMC SOE has received great support and assistance from the owner, Italian Classification Society and other related parties. This project is another one of projects of CIMC SOE which is customized for the ship owner to cater to its needs. The vessel is 113 meters in length, 20 meters in width, 13.5 meters in depth and 6.5 meters in draft. Its electric propulsion system, dual fuel generator sets and efficient full rotary thrusters allow for complete LNG bunkering functions.

CIMC SOE has delivered more than 40 LNG vessels, including two 20,000m3 LNG carriers and two 7,500m3 LNG bunkering vessels as the current largest LNG bunkering vessel builder in China. This bunkering vessel project marks that CIMC SOE has become capable of building vessels on its own site with complete facilities, demonstrating its leading position in the domestic small and medium-sized LNG vessel market and its unremitting efforts to promote China's shipping industry to achieve the goal of "Dual Carbon".

CIMC SOE will always be committed to providing various high-quality green ships, and will make every effort to complete the project construction on time, creating satisfactory ship products for customers, thus contributing to the development of green shipping in China and the international community.
