Dynagas LNG carrier rescues two people in Florida Straits

A newbuild LNG carrier, owned by Dynagas and chartered by Cheniere, recently rescued two persons in the Florida Straits.

Greek LNG carrier owner Dynagas said in a social media post on Wednesday the rescue operation was carried out by the 200,000-cbm LNG carrier, Clean Vitality, while transiting the Straits of Florida on July 3.

The strait is located between the Florida Keys and Cuba.

“The crew received a distress call on VHF from a pleasure craft seven nautical miles away and initiated a rescue operation, resulting in the successful rescue of two survivors,” Dynagas said.

“Our crew provided them with necessary care, clothing, water, and food until the USCG cutter approached the vessel where they safely disembarked,” the company said.

Dynagas did not provide further information.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, Clean Destiny is loaded with a cargo from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG plant Louisiana.

The vessel was located on Thursday offshore Brazil and it appears to be heading to Asia to deliver its cargo.

Earlier this year, Dynagas took delivery of Clean Vitality from South Korea’s HD Hyundai Heavy.

Clean Vitality serves a 10-year charter with US LNG exporting giant Cheniere.

Back in June 2021, Dynagas ordered four 200,000-cbm LNG carriers each worth about $199 million and this LNG carrier is third in that batch.

Dynagas took delivery of Clean Resolution from Hyundai Heavy, the first vessel in this batch, in September 2023, and this vessel serves Cheniere as well. This is also the case with Clean Destiny, which joined the fleet in December.

After this order in 2021, Dynagas ordered three more LNG carriers of the same size at Hyundai Heavy in 2022, as well as three vessels in January last year and two vessels in May last year.

The ships feature GTT’s Mark III Flex+ membrane containment system and are 299.8 meters long and 48.9 meters wide.

Dynagas is expected to take delivery of all of these vessels by the end of 2027.
