The second of six new small chemical tankers ordered by the Gothia Tanker Alliance has been delivered to its owner.

Named Ramanda, the tanker was constructed by China’s shipbuilder Avic Dingheng for Sweden-based shipowner Rederi AB Älvtank.

Featuring a capacity of 20,000 cbm, the 16,300 dwt unit is equipped with dual fuel engines for LNG operation and is of ice class 1A.

Designed by Swedish marine engineering firm FKAB, the vessel concept is named FKAB T24C1 and was developed by FKAB together with the owner Furetank.

Two more vessels from the batch are scheduled to be delivered during 2018 by Avic Dingheng.
