Hyundai Samho launches LNG carrier for Alpha Gas

South Korea’s Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries has launched the 174,000-cbm LNG carrier, Energy Fortitude, for Greece’s Alpha Gas.

Alpha Gas announced the launching of the vessel in a short social media post on Wednesday.

The LNG carrier owner expects to take delivery of this XDF vessel in the first quarter of 2024.

Hyundai Samho is building in total three 174,000-cbm LNG carriers for Alpha Gas and this is the last vessel in this batch.

In April this year, the shipbuilder delivered the first LNG carrier in this batch, Energy Fidelity, and launched the second vessel, Energy Endurance, earlier this month.

The first vessel serves Jera Global Markets, a joint venture of Japan’s Jera and France’s EDF, under a charter deal.

Prior to this new delivery, Alpha Gas welcomed the 174,300-cbm Energy Intelligence into is fleet in June 2021.

This LNG carrier and its sister carrier Energy Integrity are on charter to a unit of SEFE, previously known as Gazprom Germania and now controlled by the German government.

In addition to these vessels, Alpha Gas took delivery of Energy Endeavour in 2021, Energy Pacific in 2020, and Energy Atlantic in 2015.
