Heng Tong back at Cosco Dalian for another product tanker

Emerging fuel specialist Heng Tong Fuels & Shipping, a subsidiary of Coastal Holdings, has been linked to a 22,000 dwt product tanker ordered at Cosco Dalian in China. The vessel is scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2016, according to brokers. No price has been revealed.

The Singapore-run company took delivery of a similar sized ship that is used for bunkering purposes from the same yard at the beginning of the year.

Bunker operator Heng Tong, founded in 1996, has a small fleet of ships ranging in size from 2,000 to 24,000 dwt.
