In follow up to our 2022 announcement on our newbuild LNG additions, On May 23rd, Hafnia welcomed HAFNIA LOIRE– our second (out of four newbuilds) – dual fueled LNG powered vessel.
China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) hosted a naming ceremony for the second LNG-powered LR2 tanker on May 22nd, with delivery to her owner TotalEnergies taking place on May 23rd, 2023. The four LR2 newbuilds are 250 meters long with 12 cargo tanks, enabling a carrying capacity of 110,000 dwt or 133,500 cbm. The remaining two vessels will be delivered in 2023 and 2024, to Norway’s Equinor under long term Time Charter agreements. The first vessel HAFNIA LANGUEDOC was delivered on March 15th, 2023.
HAFNIA LOIRE will set sail on the 25th of May following the completion of remaining formalities.
