Tanker News – Converting Tanker to a containership Project put on hold – August 2022.

Swedish tanker shipping company Concordia Maritime has decided to put on hold the project that has been exploring the feasibility of converting a tanker into a containership.

The technical study shows that it is technically feasible to convert P-MAX vessels into 2,100 TEU container vessels, but the increasing economic uncertainty has made it difficult to reach an agreement with an end customer,” the company informed.

To remind, in February 2022, Concordia Maritime launched a technical design study to convert and adapt a P-MAX vessel for container transportation. The study has been conducted with Stena Teknik  — a technical resource for Stena’s marine-related business areas — and a German consulting company specialising in ship design.
