Rosmorport is looking into construction of an LNG bunkering tanker of 3,000 to 5,000 cbm in capacity, Vladimir Shtrambrand, head of Rosmorport’s Fleet Construction and Development Department, said at the 2nd International Conference “Advanced port fleet - the basis of safety” held by Media Group PortNews on 18 September 2017 in Saint-Petersburg.
According to Vladimir Shtrambrand, the tanker is to be built at Onezhsky shipyard. The hull of unfinished tanker of Project RST22 is to be used for construction.
