Tradewinds is reporting today that Shell will be bunkering the two new LNG-fuelled car carriers that VW will be chartering from Siem Car Carriers. Apparently they will be delivered in 2019, carry 4,500 cars and will be fitted with a 3,000 CBM LNG tank. VW first announced this charter in 2016.

Now here's the thing. I can't find these ships anywhere. Are these the second pair from Uljanik? (yardnos. 524/525). Those are listed in IHS for 2018 delivery first of all (but delay is the order of the day by now), carry 7,000 cars and are not fitted with DF engines.

Can anyone point me to the right ships?

Many thanks!
Ralph

No it doesn't. I went through the whole list in IHS and there is really no alternative for the second pair from Uljanik (yardnos 524/525), which are apparently now coming in 2019. So it must them I guess.

Tradewinds is reporting that these two ships were ordered at Xiamen Shipbuilding in May 2017.
