Alpha Gas takes delivery of LNG carrier Energy Endurance in South Korea

South Korea’s Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries has delivered the 174,000-cbm LNG carrier, Energy Endurance, to Greece’s Alpha Gas.

Alpha Gas announced the delivery of the vessel in a short social media post on Tuesday.

Energy Endurance is the second XDF LNG carrier to join Alpha Gas fleet, from a series of three to be delivered to the Greek owner by HSHI within 2023-2024, it said.

The firm did not provide any additional information.

HSHI launched this LNG carrier in July last year.

In April last year, the shipbuilder delivered the first LNG carrier in this batch, Energy Fidelity, and this vessel serves Jera Global Markets, a joint venture of Japan’s Jera and France’s EDF, under a charter deal.

HSHI also launched in July last year the third LNG carrier, Energy Fortitude.

Prior to these deliveries, Alpha Gas welcomed the 174,300-cbm Energy Intelligence into its fleet in June 2021.

This LNG carrier and its sister vessel Energy Integrity are on charter to a unit of SEFE, previously known as Gazprom Germania and now controlled by the German government.

In addition to these vessels, Alpha Gas took delivery of Energy Endeavour in 2021, Energy Pacific in 2020, and Energy Atlantic in 2015.

Following delivery of Energy Fortitude later this year, Alpha Gas will have eight LNG carriers in its fleet.
