Sweden’s Erik Thun has ordered another in a series of Chinese-built tankers running on LNG and liquid biogas (LBG).

The 17,999-dwt Vinga-class product carrier is the tenth contracted by members of the Gothia Tanker Alliance, a market platform for small and intermediate ships.

Ship number nine was ordered by partner Furetank in January.

All the tankers are being constructed at China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Yangzhou.

Furetank will technically and commercially manage the new vessel on delivery in 2024.
