Hudong completes first LNG carrier for CSSC Shipping

China’s Hudong-Zhonghua has completed the first LNG carrier it is building for CSSC Shipping, the financial leasing unit of China State Shipbuilding Corporation.

Hudong, also part of CSSC, held a naming ceremony for the 174,000-cbm Mu Lan on Monday. The Shanghai yard should deliver the vessel by the end of this month.

To remind, the LNG carrier has completed its gas trials last month.

Shipbuilding sources tell LNG Prime this vessel would go on charter to state-owned giant CNPC.

Hudong is also building sister vessel Gui Ying which recently completed its sea trials.

In addition to these vessels, the Chinese yard also signed another contract with CSSC Shipping in July for the third LNG carrier.

Part of Hudong’s fourth-generation Changxing series, all the LNG carriers will feature WinGD’s X-DF dual-fuel engines and GTT’s NO96 L03+ containment system.

They will be 295 meters long and 45 meters wide.
