Greece’s Maran Gas welcomes new LNG carrier in its fleet

Greece’s Maran Gas, the gas shipping unit of Angelicoussis, has added another newbuild liquefied natural gas carrier to its large LNG fleet.

South Korea’s shipbuilding giant Samsung Heavy Industries delivered the 174,000-cbm, Maran Gas Marseille, on Monday, according to a social media post by Angelicoussis.

The Greek-flagged and BV-classed vessel has an optimized hull form, shaft generators, high-efficiency gas screw compressors, an air lubrication system, and LNG sub-cooler, the group led by Maria Angelicoussis said.

According to VesselsValue data, Maran Gas ordered this LNG carrier at Samsung Heavy in November 2020 for about $186 million.

The LNG carrier will serve French energy giant TotalEnergies under a charter deal, the data shows.

Maran Gas has 45 ships under management and 13 vessels on order, its website shows.

The firm ordered in total 11 LNG carriers at South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering, now Hanwha Ocean, since November 2021.

This includes the two LNG carriers it ordered at Hanwha Ocean in March this year.
