Jiangnan lays keel for Jovo’s LNG carrier

China’s Jiangnan Shipyard is continuing to progress with the construction of a 79,800-cbm LNG carrier for compatriot energy firm Jovo.

The state-owned yard in Shanghai held a keel-laying ceremony for the LNG carrier to be named Mulan Spirit on August 8, according to a statement by Jovo.

Jiangnan started building this 229.99 meters long LNG carrier in December last year following the order by Jovo in August.

The vessel will have dual-fuel engines and GTT’s Mark III Flex containment system.

According to Jiangnan, this would be the first LNG carrier built in China to have the Mark III technology.

In addition, Jiangnan entered the mid-scale LNG carrier market with this project.

Under its shipbuilding plan, Jovo also ordered one 93,000-cbm very large gas carrier (VLGC) at Jiangnan.

Jovo expects the entire project to complete in the first quarter of 2024.
