Vessel number four, M/T SYDSTRAUM, in this series of Stainless steel tankers was delivered to Utkilen AS on Thursday 6th August.
“This completes this series of four stainless steel tankers and we wish her and the crew a safe journey home when she starts sailing towards European waters.
It has been made by a great cooperation, with solution focussed persons involved, between FKAB Marine Design, the Owner Utkilen AS and the shipyard China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Yangzhou) Dingheng Co. Ltd.
We at FKAB send a warm thank you to all involved parties that made this happen.
It has been a great journey and we are proud and grateful to be onboard this project.”
The vessels are 10 500 DWT stainless steel tankers and of a very environmentally friendly design with focus on low fuel consumption, reduced NOx emissions and to prepare them for possible future upgrades of fuel with the installed LNG ready engine.
Shore power is installed with capacity enough to handle loading and unloading.
The high loading and unloading pump capacity in combination with great tank cleaning efficiency will reduce time in ports.
The vessel is prepared for a battery pack installation to be used either as UPS or for Peak shaving.
The vessel is designed by FKAB Marine Design in close and very good cooperation with both the owner Utkilen A/S and the Shipyard China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Yangzhou) Dingheng Co. Ltd. (Former Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding Co. Ltd.)
The Utkilen T32 design is an ice class chemical tanker with cargo tanks in duplex stainless steel.
