Greek shipping firm Capital Gas has taken delivery of a new 174,000-cbm LNG vessel from South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries.
HHI handed over the 299 meters long LNG carrier Adamastos on Monday, according to a statement by Evangelos Marinakis-led Capital Gas.
The shipping firm said the vessel would serve France’s Engie for a period of up to 7 years.
This LNG carrier follows the recent delivery of Attalos, which serves a long-term charter with BP.
Prior to that, the Greek shipper welcomed Aristarchos, which works under a long-term charter with US LNG exporter Cheniere.
Also, Capital Gas chartered the first two vessels, Aristidis I and Aristos I, to BP as well.
Capital Gas says it has four LNG newbuilds on order in South Korea scheduled for delivery in 2021-2023. It recently ordered two new LNG carriers at HHI.
All of the nine LNG carriers will feature WinGD’s X-DF engines and GTT’s Mark III Flex containment system but also an air lubrication system and increased filling limits.
