Jovo’s LNG carrier wraps up gas trials

Jovo’s first 79,800-cbm LNG carrier is almost ready for delivery after the completion of its gas trials, according to China’s Jiangnan Shipyard.

The state-owned yard located in Shanghai said in a statement that the LNG carrier Mulan Spirit has completed its gas trials on October 18.

Jiangnan is now preparing to deliver China’s first medium-sized LNG carrier equipped with GTT’s Mark III Flex membrane containment system.

The shipbuilder did not say when it expects to hand over the vessel but the delivery is expected to take place by the end of this year.

Jiangnan started building this 229.99 meters long dual-fuel LNG carrier with a draft of 10.6 meters in December 2021 following the order by Jovo in August.

The shipbuilder launched the vessel, classed by LR, in February this year and the vessel completed its sea trials in September.

Jovo previously said that its fleet currently includes four LNG and four LPG carriers and this is the first newbuild LNG carrier in its fleet.
