Terntank names two LNG-powered tankers

Danish shipping company, Terntank Rederi recently held a naming ceremony for the two of its four LNG-powered newbuilds at AVIC Dingheng Shipbuilding in China.

The first vessel was named M/T Ternsund and is scheduled for delivery by end-June, as Terntank expects the vessel will take up to six weeks to sail from China to Europe, the company said in a statement on Thursday.

Upon delivery, it will enter a time charter with Finnish North European Oil Trade (NEOT) to distribute refined oil products from the company’s refinery in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The second vessel was named M/T Ternfjord, and it is scheduled for delivery in August 2016. Ternfjord’s hull was launched a day after the naming ceremony at AVIC Dingheng Shipbuilding, Terntank informed.

Once delivered, the vessel will be deployed in Norway under a time charter deal with ExxonMobil. It is set to distribute refined oil products from ExxonMobil’s refinery in Slagentangen, Norway.

The two other vessels are scheduled for delivery by end 2016 and beginning of 2017, Terntank said.
