K Line’s LNG carrier nearing completion in China

China’s Hudong-Zhonghua has almost completed the third 79,960-cbm LNG carrier the yard is building for owner K Line and charterer Petronas.

According to a statement by Hudong-Zhonghua, the 239 meters long vessel, Lagenda Setia (H1838A), has completed its sea trials in just 72 hours, setting a new record for the shipbuilder in LNG carrier construction.

The shipbuilder plans to start the vessel’s gas trials in mid-July.

Hudong-Zhonghua said this is the third vessel for the Petronas project, but it did not name the owner of the ship.

This is the third medium-sized LNG carrier K Line ordered at the shipbuilder back in 2021.

Hudong-Zhonghua launched this vessel in November last year.

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.

K Line chartered both of these ship to Petronas for a period of 12 years.

They transport LNG from Malaysia to China under a long-term deal Petronas signed with China’s Shenergy Group.

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.
