Chinese shipowner Tianjin Southwest Maritime (TSM) has exercised an option to build an additional VLGC at CSSC’s Jiangnan Shipyard.
The company ordered one dual fuel 86,000 cu m VLGC at the yard in December last year, with the option for one more ship.
Delivery of the latest ship is expected in 2022.
Earlier this month, TSM also ordered a 9,500 cu m multi gas carrier at CSSC’s Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding.
TSM currently operates a fleet of 24 ships, made up of seven tankers and 17 LPG carriers.
