The ceremony, attended by officials from CIMC SOE, Hartmann, and DNV, took place on October 16, according to a statement by the shipbuilder.

CIMC SOE recently launched the first LNG-powered vessel in this series, GasChem Fuji.

The shipbuilder said that GasChem Fuji is about 116 meters long and 18 meters wide.

Also, the LEG carrier has a design draft of 7 meters and a deadweight of about 6,300 tons.

Leer-based and family-owned Hartmann ordered these vessels at CIMC SOE last year.

GasChem Services, a part of Hartmann, expects to take delivery of all of the three LNG-powered ships in 2024.

Hartmann operates a fleet of more than 150 vessels and these include gas carriers, containerships, and multi-purpose vessels, according to its website.
