E&S Tankers delivers 1st of four LNG-fueled tankers

E&S Tankers has taken delivery of the first of four of its 6,600 dwt duplex, stainless steel LNG dual-fuel chemical tankers Liselotte Esseberger.
The FS Ice Class 1A ship was built by Yangfang shipyard in China, and is fitted with a dual-fuel engine capable of running on LNG and conventional fuel. The ship has a 7,500 cbm carrying capacity and 16 cargo tanks.
MAN Energy Solutions was contracted to deliver integrated HyProp ECO propulsion solutions for the vessels.
The new vessels will be optimized in terms of hull design and equipment, resulting in a significantly improved energy efficiency of at least 30% and the ability to use shore power connections during cargo operations.
Under the contract, the company has options for an additional four vessels.
Data from VesselsValue shows that two more vessels from the series are slated for delivery in 2023, with the final tanker from the batch following suit in 2024.
