Chinese owner Tianjin Southwest Maritime has returned to CSSC-affiliated Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding to commission larger ammonia dual-fuel gas carriers.

This new agreement, following the 25,000 cu m newbuilds reported by Splash earlier this year, includes two firm orders for 41,000 cu m vessels at the shipyard in Guangzhou.

The ships, measuring 179.9 meters in length, are secured by a long-term charter with Trammo Navigation and are scheduled for delivery in 2026 and 2027.

The vessels will feature three A-type liquid cargo tanks and two deck tanks, designed to transport both LPG and ammonia.

Southwest Maritime’s collaboration with Huangpu Wenchong is part of an ongoing relationship that has produced several newbuild projects, including asphalt tankers, LPG carriers, and other multipurpose gas carriers.
