GEFO orders six chemical tankers in China

The AVIC Dingheng shipyard in China produces a range of vessels.

German shipping group Gesellschaft für Öltransporte (GEFO) has placed a order for six stainless-steel chemical tankers from China’s AVIC Dingheng shipyard.

GEFO and AVIC signed a letter of intent for the construction of the six 3,600DWT ships in February.

The 99.9-metre by 14-metre newbuilds, which have an operating speed of 13 knots, are scheduled for delivery in 2020 and 2021.

Hamburg-based GEFO mainly operates on the Rhine River and between European coastal ports.
