Continental Bitumen to build Bitumen tankers at WUHU Shipyard designed by FKAB

FKAB Marine Design proudly presents the new building project of 2 x 21 000 m3 bitumen tankers, ordered by Continental Bitumen at Wuhu Shipyard Co. Ltd.

This state-of-the-art FKAB design is based on Continental Bitumen’s high quality requirements with a focus on low environmental impact, long-term operation, high flexibility, and very low fuel consumption, using the FKAB’s proven modern lines with F-Bow.

The design is a Bitumen & Oil Product tanker with independent cargo tanks for bitumen and asphalt.

The propulsion system consists of a four stroke DF main engine with CP-propeller using LNG/LBG as main fuels.
It is designed with full battery / UPS power, preventing from black outs.
