Sweden-based Donsötank has ordered two dual-fuel 22,500 dwt oil and chemical tankers newbuilds from Chinese shipbuilder Wuhu Shipyard.

New chemical tankers

Donsötank stated on social media that the vessels’ structure and equipment would be based on the same plans as its previous vessels, Prospero and Pacifico, which were also built by Wuhu Shipyard and delivered to the Swedish business in 2021.Donsötank will get the two freshly ordered newbuilds in the second and fourth quarters of 2025.The new chemical tankers will be 167 metres long, 26.5 metres wide, and carry 27,800 cubic metres of cargo.The LNG-LBG/diesel dual-fuel propulsion, 500kWh battery pack, shore power connection, SCR-catamiser, and waste heat recovery system, according to the business, will enable cleaner and more efficient operations. A particular coating of the cargo tanks on the vessels will also allow the corporation to safely load a wide range of emerging cargoes such as bioproducts, biofuels, animal fats, and other impending commodities in the industry.

“As we chart the course for the future of shipping, we remain committed to adapting our fleet.” It is not only about complying with rules, but also about actively contributing to the industry’s progress and influencing the future of shipping,” the company noted.

Order with shipbuilder

Wuhu Shipyard has recently been in the news several times. EGPN placed an order with the shipbuilder in April for four firm plus four optional 18,500 dwt chemical tankers.The other reason, on the other hand, was far from positive. Three people were killed at the shipyard earlier this month after heavy winds toppled a crane.
