Flex LNG welcomes twelfth LNG carrier in its fleet

Flex LNG has taken delivery of its twelfth vessel from South Korea’s Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries.

To remind, the Norwegian owner said earlier this month it would take delivery of the vessel ahead of schedule as it looks to benefit from an unbelievable surge in the spot market due to a cold snap in Asia.

Flex Volunteer features WinGD’s XD-F dual-fuel propulsion and GTT’s Mark III Flex containment system. It also has a reliquefaction system with a boil-off rate of 0.085% per day.

Additionally, Flex has also one more carrier on order at Hyundai, Flex Vigilant. This is a sister ship to Flex Volunteer.

Following delivery of this vessel in the second quarter, Flex will wrap up its newbuild program with thirteen ships on water.
