Jiangnan launches Jovo’s LNG carrier

China’s Jiangnan Shipyard has launched the first 79,800-cbm mid-scale LNG carrier for compatriot energy firm Jovo.

The state-owned yard in Shanghai held the launching ceremony for the LNG carrier to be named Mulan Spirit on February 15, according to a statement by Jiangnan.

Besides the LNG carrier, Jiangnan also launched the 93,000-cbm VLGC, Gas Jupiter, for Tianjin Southwest Maritime.

Jiangnan started building this 229.99 meters long LNG carrier with a draft of 10.6 meters in December 2021 following the order by Jovo in August.

The CSSC yard held a keel-laying ceremony for the vessel in August last year.

Jiangnan expects to deliver this LNG carrier by the end of this year.

The vessel has dual-fuel engines and GTT’s Mark III Flex containment system.

According to Jiangnan, this will be the first LNG carrier built in China to have the Mark III technology.

In addition, Jiangnan entered the mid-scale LNG carrier market with this project.

Last year, Jiangan also won its first order for large LNG carriers and will build in total six LNG vessels for a unit of UAE’s Abu Dhabi National Oil Co (Adnoc).
