Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) has added car carriers to its product portfolio with an order for two LNG-fuelled ships from John Fredriksen's SFL Corp.

Shipping sources with knowledge of the newbuilding deal said SFL is paying the state-owned shipyard around $75m each for the 7,000-ceu newbuildings.

Officials at GSI were not available for comment.

As TradeWinds has reported, New York-listed SFL said at the end of April that it was ordering the vessels against a 10-year charter from a European automobile manufacturer.
