Finnish shipbuilding company Wärtsilä has won a €110 million ($131 million) order for four dual-fuel shuttle oil tankers from Teekay, according to Seatrade Maritime News.

The vessels will run on LNG as their primary fuel but also be capable of running on a mixture of LNG and recovered volatile organic compounds – the gas that evaporates from oil cargo tanks during loading.

The vessels will be built at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in South Korea.
