Chinese tanker operator Dingheng Shipping has placed an order at Wuhu Shipyard for the construction of six chemical tankers.

The order includes five 6,600 dwt tankers and one 9,000 dwt tanker. All the vessels will be equipped with smart navigation systems as part of Dingheng’s plan to form a “smart green” fleet. Deliveries of the vessels are scheduled in 2022.
