Hafnia welcomes fourth LNG dual-fuel product tanker

Singapore-based tanker operator Hafnia has taken delivery of its fourth LNG dual-fuel product tanker, Hafnia Lillesand.


Hafnia Lillesand, a 110,000-dwt crude oil and product tanker, is the final vessel in a series of four LNG-powered Aframax LR2 vessels ordered by Hafnia through its Vista Shipping joint venture with CSSC Shipping.

The naming ceremony for the Hafnia Lillesand took place on February 29 at GSI Shipyard in Guangzhou, China. 

The first two tankers delivered during 2023 serve France’s TotalEnergies under long-term charter deals, while Hafnia Larvik (delivered in 2023) and Hafnia Lillesand will serve serve Norway’s Equinor under charter deals.
