A 5th Dual-Fuel / LNG Oil Tanker for Desgagnés

April 3, 2019

Desgagnés announced the acquisition of a 5th dual-fuel (diesel/LNG) oil/chemical tanker, the M/T Fure Vinga, soon to be renamed M/T GAÏA DESGAGNÉS. Able to sail worldwide, she will primarily carry refined petroleum products on the Great Lakes, the St. Lawrence, the Arctic and the East coasts of Canada and the United States.

Recently built in April 2018, this 16,300-ton double-hull vessel, 150 meters long and 22.8 meters wide, holds an ice class 1A and can carry nearly 20,000 m³ of cargo in its tanks. She is also equipped with a bow thruster and a high efficiency rudder, providing exemplary safety during maneuvers.

The GAÏA DESGAGNÉS, 5th vessel using liquefied natural gas as fuel to be integrated in the Desgagnés fleet since 2017, joins the first 4 which were designed and built specifically for the company. She also is part of the company’s major fleet renewal plan, started a few years ago, confirming its commitment to better serve its customers and demonstrating, in a tangible way, Desgagnés’s vision and leadership in sustainable development.
