K Line welcomes LNG carrier Lagenda Setia in its fleet

China’s Hudong-Zhonghua has delivered the 79,960-cbm LNG carrier, Lagenda Setia, to Japan’s K Line.

According to a statement by K Line, the newly-built W-Max class LNG carrier, which will serve a charter deal with Malaysia’s Petronas, was delivered on September 28.

Prior to delivery, Hudong-Zhonghua held the naming ceremony for the 239 meters long LNG carrier on August 21.

This is the third medium-sized LNG carrier K Line ordered at Hudong-Zhonghua back in 2021 and it will serve Petronas under a charter deal, such as the previous two vessels.

Hudong-Zhonghua previously said that the vessel is jointly owned by K Line, ICBC Financial Leasing, and Shenergy.

K Line said in its statement that the management and staff of Petronas, Hudong-Zhonghua, Shenergy, and ICBC Financial Leasing also attended the naming ceremony, but it did not provide details regarding the ownership of the vessel.

Lagend is a Malay word for legend and Setia is for loyalty.

The new LNG carrier is a sister vessel to the 79,960-cbm Lagenda Serenity and Lagenda Suria, delivered in May and June last year, respectively.

“Lagenda, which is also used as the name of the sister vessels represent loyalty and dedication of the LNG-supplying vessel, as well as the long-term relationship with charterers,” K Line said.

The three vessels will transport LNG from Malaysia to China under a long-term deal Petronas signed with China’s Shenergy.

The Wuhaogou-Max (W-Max) vessels are optimized for the delivery of LNG cargoes to Shenergy’s Wuhaogou terminal in Shanghai.

The ships feature WinGD’s dual-fuel X-DF propulsion and GTT’s NO96 L03+ containment system.
