South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries has delivered a 174,000-cbm LNG carrier to Greek firm Minerva Gas, a unit of Andreas Martinos-led Minerva Marine.
Samsung Heavy handed over LNG carrier Minerva Amorgos on October 14, according to Minerva Gas.
The ABS-classed Minerva Amorgos is flying the Malta flag.
Minerva Gas did not reveal the charterer of the vessel.
This is the final LNG carrier in a batch of three vessels SHI built for the Greek firm.
SHI delivered the 174,000-cbm Minerva Kalymnos in February last year, followed by Minerva Chios in August the same year.
All of the sister LNG carriers feature WinGD’s X-DF propulsion, GTT’s Mark III Flex Plus containment system, and an Airliquide subcooler system.
In addition to these three carriers, Minerva Gas took delivery of two LNG tankers from South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering.
The 173,400-cbm Minerva Limnos joined the fleet of Minerva Gas in June last year while its sister ship Minerva Psara started working with Shell in January 2020.
Both of these newbuilds feature MAN ME-GI propulsion, GTT’s NO96 containment tech, and a partial reliquefaction system.
