The Chinese yard previously known as AVIC Dingheng Shipbuilding launched the 7,000 dwt stainless steel tanker Norma on July 2.

GEFO ordered two FKAB Marine-designed LNG-ready vessels in 2018.

However, the German owner said last year it amended the order for the second vessel to include LNG propulsion.

This vessel will get two 162-cbm LNG fuel systems from Gloryholder LGM as part of a deal revealed earlier this year.

Both of the vessels will have 14 cargo tanks and will be certified for Finnish/Swedish ice class, ICE 1A.
