SFL’s LNG-fuelled PCTC newbuild leaves shipyard

SFL Corporation has announced that the LNG-fuelled Emden, a new pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) has left Guangzhou Shipyard International.

The 7,000 CEU vessel will sail under a long-term charter to Volkswagen Group.

The Emden is the first of four new LNG-fuelled PCTCs ordered by SFL. In addition to the two chartered by Volkswagen, the company announced in August 2021 that it had entered into long term charters with ‘a leading Asia-based transportation company’ for an additional two new vessels.
