NYK affiliated company France LNG Shipping SAS has signed a long-term charter contract for a new LNG carrier with EDF LNG Shipping SAS.
Scheduled for delivery in 2025 from Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries Co., the newly built LNG carrier will be feature WinGD-manufactured, dual-fuel slow-speed diesel engines.
The carrier will also feature an Air Liquide-manufactured Turbo-Brayton refrigeration system that can tap surplus boil-off gas. Manufactured by GTT, the 174,000-cubic metre capacity (cbm) membrane-type tank will be made of advanced insulating materials that are said to reduce the vaporisation rate.
As previously reported, last month, NYK delivered the 174,000 cbm LNG Endurance, which is being commercially managed by France LNG Shipping. The vessel will operate under long term charter with TotaEnergies Gas & Power.
