Hantong wins more German product orders

Jiangsu Hantong Ship Heavy Industry has won an important order that stretches its orderbook potentially into the second half of 2018.

German owner Ernst Jacob has come in for two 74,000 dwt LRI product tankers with options for six more. The first ship – designed by Shanghai Merchant Ship Design & Research Institute – will deliver in November 2017.

Last month Hantong won an order to build three 74,000 dwt LR1 tankers from Conti, also from Germany.
