DSME to deliver first Minerva LNG newbuild

South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering is to deliver the first out of two Minerva LNG newbuilds following the completion of the vessels’ gas trials.

The 173,400-cbm Minerva Psara completed its gas trials on December 11.

Minerva Gas, a unit of Andreas Martinos-led Minerva Marine, will take delivery of the vessel in early January.

Following delivery, the carrier will start term employment with a major LNG charterer, Minerva said without revealing further information.

The newbuild features MAN ME-GI propulsion and GTT’s NO96 containment system.

Besides these two sister vessels at Daewoo, Minerva has another three 174,000-cbm LNG carriers under construction at the Samsung Heavy yard in Korea.

These vessels will have WinGD’s X-DF propulsion and GTT’s Mark III Flex Plus containment system.
