New shuttle tanker design being developed

China’s Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Company has joined with Finland’s Wärtsilä Corporation to jointly develop a preliminary production level design for a 127,000 dwt shuttle tanker.

The demand for shuttle tankers is forecasted to increase and by having a ready and approved design available, the building period can be significantly reduced.

Wärtsilä will provide technical design support for the project, which will include an optimised propulsion system, while the vessel would be classed by DNV-GL and built by Dalian Shipbuilding.
