Terntank adds fifth vessel to wind&methanol capable fleet


Terntank, a family-owned shipping company, has decided to exercise its option for the fifth next-generation oil and chemical tanker with wind-assisted propulsion and a dual-fuel engine capable of running on MGO, biofuels and methanol

In March 2024, Terntank announced plans to expand its fleet with an order for a 15,000 dwt vessel, building on previous orders for three such dual-fuel tankers.

On July 5, the company announced that it had exercised the option and ordered the additional vessel from China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Yangzhou).

This will be the eleventh Terntank to be built at the Chinese yard.

The vessels, designed by Kongsberg, are part of the company’s “Setting Sail For The Future” series.

The vessels feature four retractable sails and Terntank’s hybrid solution, which includes electric power systems, battery packs and shore power connections.

The first vessel in the series is under construction and will be delivered in March 2025, with the fifth expected in July 2027.
