According to BW’s website, the group’s fleet includes 29 LNG carriers and 5 FSRUs.

BW has four 174,000-cbm ME-GI LNG carriers on order at South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering.

In August last year, BW took delivery of two newbuild LNG carriers from DSME and these vessels serve BP and ENN.

The shipping firm has taken delivery of 13 LNG vessels since 2018, its website shows.
