Dynagas welcomes new LNG tanker in its fleet

Greek LNG shipping firm Dynagas has taken delivery of the 200,000-cbm LNG carrier, Clean Vitality, in South Korea.

The firm led by George Procopiou revealed this in a short social media post on Friday.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, the ME-GA LNG carrier left HD Hyundai Heavy’s yard in Ulsan, South Korea last week.

Clean Vitality will serve a 10-year charter with US LNG exporting giant Cheniere, the data shows.

Back in June 2021, Dynagas ordered four 200,000-cbm LNG carriers each worth about $199 million and this LNG carrier is third in that batch.

Dynagas took delivery of Clean Resolution from Hyundai Heavy, the first vessel in this batch, in September 2023, and this vessel serves Cheniere as well. This is also the case with Clean Destiny, which joined the fleet in December, the data shows.

After this order in 2021, Dynagas ordered three more LNG carriers of the same size at Hyundai Heavy in 2022, as well as three vessels in January last year and two vessels in May last year.

The ships feature GTT’s Mark III Flex+ membrane containment system and are 299.8 meters long and 48.9 meters wide.

Dynagas is expected to take delivery of all of these vessels by the end of 2027.
