Desgagnés adds fifth LNG-fuelled oil tanker

Published by
LNG Industry,

Desgagnés has announced its acquisition of a fifth dual-fuel (diesel/LNG) oil/chemical tanker, the M/T Fure Vinga, soon to be renamed M/T Gaïa Desgagnés.

Able to sail worldwide, the vessel will primarily carry refined petroleum products on the Great Lakes, the St. Lawrence, the Arctic and the East coasts of Canada and the US.

Recently built in April 2018, the 16 300 t double-hull vessel, 150 m long and 22.8 m wide, holds an ice class 1A and can carry nearly 20 000 m3 of cargo in its tanks.

The Gaïa Desgagnés is the fifth vessel using LNG as fuel to be integrated in the Desgagnés fleet since 2017. It joins the first four which were designed and built specifically for the company. The vessel is part of the company's major fleet renewal plan, started a few years ago, confirming its commitment to better serve its customers and demonstrating, in a tangible way, Desgagnés's vision and leadership in sustainable development.

The Gaïa Desgagnés, currently in Europe, will arrive in Canada by the end of April for the closing of the transaction, at which point she will be fitted to the Desgagnés colours and begin her operations by mid-May.
