Odfjell has ordered four chemical tankers (with options for an additional four) with stainless steel cargo tanks from China Shipbuilding Trading CO., Ltd. and Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) CO., Ltd. The ships cost $60m each.
 
The 49,000 dwt ships, with a cargo capacity at 54,600 cbm, reportedly makes them the world's largest stainless steel chemical tankers, according to the Norwegian owner. "We are very happy with the agreement we have signed today, which is a significant step in solving our tonnage replacement needs," said Kristian Mørch, CEO Odfjell SE."
 
The first ship is expected to be delivered in June 2019 and the following vessels with three months intervals.
