South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries has launched a 180,000 cbm LNG newbuild for Greece-based owner GasLog.

GasLog says the yard in Geoje held the launching event of SN2312 to be named GasLog Winchester on January 16.

These include the 174,000-cbm GasLog Georgetown and the recent delivery of GasLog Galveston.

Additionally, the Korean yard launched the third carrier, the 180,000-cbm GasLog Wellington, on October 24. GasLog previously said it expects to take the delivery of this vessel on June 15.
