Tiger Gas welcomes second LNG tank carrier

Hong Kong-based Tiger Gas, led by former Seaspan CEO Gerry Wang, has taken delivery of the second out of four LNG ISO tank carriers in China.

China’s Yangzijiang Shipbuilding delivered the second vessel in this batch of world’s largest LNG tank carriers to the owner on Monday, the shipbuilder said in a statement.

This vessel named Tiger Maanshan follows the first CCS-classed ship, Tiger Longkou, that joined Tiger Gas in January.

The 192 meters long vessels have LNG dual-fuel engines and also feature type C tanks. CSSC Hudong Heavy Machinery provided the engines and the fuel gas supply system (FGSS), according to Yangzijiang.

Yangzijiang said the ships would operate at a speed of 16 knots and while sailing on LNG would have a range of up to 5,000 nautical miles.

All of the ships will be capable of transporting ISO tanks in both deep sea and inland waters such as the Yangtze River.

They will have a capacity to carry 690 40ft LNG ISO tanks or about 15,000 tons of LNG.

Tiger Gas will use these vessels to mainly transport ISO tanks from Malaysia to China.

Malaysia’s Petronas started exporting LNG to China in ISO tanks last year, as part of a deal with Tiger Clean Energy, a unit of Tiger Gas.
