Langh Ship christens next MPP newbuilding “Olivia”

The shipping company Langh Ship has christened the “Olivia”, its second MPP newbuilding in a series of 3,800-ton vessels.

The Finnish shipping company will receive a total of three freighters of this type. The ” Lovisa” was already delivered in November[ds_preiew].

The latest ship has now been christened “Olivia” in Ningbo, China. The ship’s godmother, Natalie Ella Olivia Toivola, is the goddaughter of the managing director of Langh Ship, Laura Langh-Lagerlöf.

The “Olivia” is being built at the Wuhu shipyard in China. The series is intended for the transportation of steel coils from Finland to Central Europe for the Finnish stainless steel manufacturer Outokumpu. The return cargo is recycled stainless steel and other products in bulk.

The newbuildings with a carrying capacity of 7,800 tons have a box-shaped hold with adjustable bulkheads. With their dual-fuel main engine (4,500 kW), the vessels are designed for operation with various alternative fuels such as LNG and bio-LNG and the use of shore power and battery technologies. In addition to LNG, the newbuilds will also be able to bunker methanol or ammonia.

“Lovisa” reached Europe at the beginning of January and has now been added to the Outokumpu liner service between Finland and the Netherlands. The newbuildings were developed by the shipping company in collaboration with the steel group and the Chinese design office SDARI. Three MPP vessels from the Langh Ship fleet are already sailing for Outokumpu.
