Turkish Besiktas Shipyard has launched another dual-fuel LNG IMO-II chemical tanker for the Canadian shipping company Desgagnés Group.

Featuring 14,000 dwt, the tanker, named M/T Rossi A. Desgagnés, was launched on May 5, 2018.

The ice class tanker is the final in a series of four asphalt-bitumen-chemical tankers ordered by Desgagnés.

Each of the four vessels can be powered by any of three types of fuel – heavy fuel oil, marine diesel oil or liquefied natural gas (LNG).

With 10,000 gross tons, the newbuilding features a length of 135 meters and a width of 23.5 meters. The unit currently has a market value of around USD 20.9 million, according to data provided by VesselsValue.

The third ship from the batch, Paul A. Desgagnés, was launched at Besiktas Shipyard’s facilities in July 2017. Mia Desgagnés, the second tanker, was launched in December 2016.

Damia Desgagnés, the world’s first dual fuel LNG asphalt tanker, was delivered to the company in April 2017.
