This state-of-the-art FKAB design is based on GEFO’s high-quality requirements with a focus of the long-term operation, high flexibility, and very low fuel consumption based on the experience of FKAB with proven modern lines in this segment over the past years.
The stainless steel chemical tanker type II and product tanker will be equipped with 14 cargo tanks and is ready for worldwide unrestricted trade. The design is especially taking into consideration the harsh weather conditions in NW-European waters and is certified for Finnish/Swedish ice class, ICE 1A.
The propulsion system consists of a four-stroke main engine with CPP being “LNG and dual fuel ready for gas & methanol”. The vessel is designed for very low fuel consumption at eco-speed of 12,5 knots at design draught and includes output from its shaft generator.
With this FKAB design, GEFO is able to meet and adopt to the future challenges for propulsion and fuel availability and render professional service for their clients with high flexibility.
GEFO has ordered 2 firm vessels with an option on 2 more. We at FKAB are glad to work together with both GEFO and Avic Dingheng on this project.
