BW takes delivery of new ME-GI LNG carrier

BW’s LNG unit has on Friday taken delivery of a newbuild ME-GI carrier from South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering.

The BW Pavilion Aranthera is BW’s fifth ME-GI vessel with re-liquefaction system in a series of nine ships.

Shipping data shows that the 173,400-cbm LNG carrier is heading to Singapore to perform its first loading operation.

The newbuild LNG carrier will serve Singapore’s Pavilion Energy as part of a charter deal signed in 2018.

The deal includes two LNG carriers. Daewoo delivered the first vessel, BW Pavilion Aranda, in September last year.

Pavilion and BW formed a joint venture in 2014 to acquire, manage and charter maritime LNG assets, including carriers.

The joint venture’s fleet includes two Singapore-flagged LNG carriers, the BW Pavilion Vanda and the BW Pavilion Leeara.
