DSME delivers ME-GI LNG carrier to BW

BW LNG, a unit of the Singapore-based gas shipping giant BW, has taken delivery of a new ME-GI vessel from South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering.

DSME delivered the 174,000-cbm BW Helios on Monday.

“Named after the sun, BW Helios will sail the seven seas bringing energy wherever she goes,” BW said.

The vessel goes on a charter to UK-based energy giant BP, such as the recently delivered BW Lesmes, according to BW.

Moreover, the LNG carrier is the seventh newbuilding featuring MAN ME-GI propulsion in a series of nine ships ordered at the Korean yard.

ME-GI is short for M-type, electronically controlled, gas-injection propulsion.

The 294.4 meters long vessel also features a reliquefaction system and GTT’s NO96 containment technology.

To remind, BW Pavilion Aranthera joined BW in July last year. This vessel works under a charter deal with BW’s partner Pavilion while the vessel delivered in February 2020, BW Magnolia, also serves BP.

The shipping firm plans to take delivery of the last two vessels in this batch in August and September in 2022, according to its website.
