Orders for eight product tankers
China-based petrochemical group Hengyi Petrochemical Co. Ltd. has ordered up to eight 49,600-ton chemical/product tankers at the local Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) shipyard.
As informed, this is the largest single batch medium-range (MR) order won by GSI in the past few years.
The agreement between Hengyi Petrochemical, GSI, and China Shipbuilding Trading was signed on 18 May 2021, according to China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC).
CSSC said that the next-generation MR tankers were independently developed by GSI for Hengyi.
The units combine energy-saving and environmentally friendly technologies.
The latest order brings the total number of ships ordered from China Shipbuilding Trading in the first half of 2021 to 21, including tankers, containerships, roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessels, and a deep-sea aquaculture platform.
