On September 12, 2016, Swedish tanker owner Terntank took delivery of M/T Ternfjord – the second in a series of four 15,000 dwt chemical tankers with a dual-fuel two-stroke engine being built by China’s Avic Dingheng Shipbuilding.
M/T Ternfjord left the shipyard one day later to load cargo destined for Europe.
Terntank earlier said the vessel will be chartered to ExxonMobil, Norway, distributing refined oil products from ExxonMobil’s refinery in Slagentangen, Norway to customers along Norway’s coastline.
The 11,374 gross ton vessel features a length of 147 meters and a width of 22 meters.
M/T Ternfjord was named on March 26, 2016, together with its sister vessel, M/T Ternsund.
On June 28, the company took delivery of M/T Ternsund, intended for distributing refined oil products from NEOT’s refinery in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The remaining two newbuilds will be delivered at the end of this year and beginning of 2017, respectively.
