New LNG carrier joins Greece’s Capital Gas

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.
