Celsius names new LNG tanker in South Korea

South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries has hosted a naming ceremony for one 180,000-cbm LNG carrier it built for Denmark’s Celsius Tankers, a unit of Celsius Shipping.

Celsius Tech, a joint venture of Celsius Shipping and Hong Kong-based Fleet Management, announced on Thursday via social media the naming ceremony for the LNG vessel, Celsius Giza.

The JV will manage this newbuild LNG carrier, such as the four other 180,000-cbm LNG carriers which were delivered to Celsius during 2020 and 2021 and other Celsius vessels.

This is the second vessel of ten Celsius has on order at Samsung Heavy and it features MAN ME-GA engine and GTT’s Mark III Flex containment tech.

The first newbuild, Celsius Geneva, was named in July.

Celsius will take delivery of all of these newbuilds during 2023-2026.

Back in October 2021, the Danish firm signed long-term charter deals for these two LNG carriers and two more vessels with Clearlake Shipping, a subsidiary of energy trader Gunvor.

In addition to these charters, Celsius Tankers, also signed long-term charter deals for four more newbuild LNG carriers with Clearlake Shipping.

China Merchants Heavy Industry in Jiangsu will build these vessels and deliver them in 2026 and 2027.

On top of this, Celsius also recently ordered two more LNG carriers at the Chinese shipbuilder and added four more optional vessels.

Following deliveries of all of these ships, the Danish firm will have 20 LNG carriers in its fleet.
