K Line names newbuild LNG carrier in China

China’s Hudong-Zhonghua has hosted a naming ceremony for the 79,960-cbm LNG carrier, Lagenda Setia, which it built for Japan’s K Line.

The naming ceremony for the 239 meters long vessel took place on Monday.

Last month, Lagenda Setia completed its trials, while Hudong-Zhonghua launched this vessel in November last year.

This is the third medium-sized LNG carrier K Line ordered at Hudong-Zhonghua back in 2021 and it will serve Malaysia’s Petronas under a charter deal, such as the previous two vessels.

Hudong-Zhonghua said in a statement that the vessel is jointly owned by K Line, ICBC Financial Leasing, and Shenergy.

The new LNG carrier is a sister vessel to the 79,960-cbm Lagenda Serenity and Lagenda Suria, delivered in May and June last year, respectively.

K Line chartered both of these ship to Petronas for a period of 12 years.

They transport LNG from Malaysia to China under a long-term deal Petronas signed with China’s Shenergy.

The Wuhaogou-Max (W-Max) vessels are optimized for the delivery of LNG cargoes to Shenergy’s Wuhaogou terminal in Shanghai.

The ships feature WinGD’s dual-fuel X-DF propulsion and GTT’s NO96 L03+ containment system.
