The sixth of eight new small chemical tankers ordered by the Gothia Tanker Alliance has been named in China.

Featuring 18,000 dwt, Ramelia was constructed by China’s shipbuilder Avic Dingheng for Sweden-based shipowner Rederi AB Älvtank.

Featuring a capacity of 19,800 cbm, the unit is equipped with batteries and dual fuel engines for LNG operation and is of ice class 1A.

Designed by Swedish marine engineering firm FKAB, the vessel concept is named FKAB T24C1 and was developed by FKAB together with the owner Furetank.

In August 2018, Rederi AB Älvtank took delivery of Ramanda, which was also deployed in the Gothia Tanker Alliance. The 20,000 cbm unit was the second newbuilding to be added to the alliance.
