Greece-based shipping firm TMS Cardiff Gas has taken delivery of a new LNG tanker in South Korea, wrapping up its 2020-2021 newbuild program which included eleven 174,000-cbm vessels.
LNGShips Manhattan was on Tuesday located in the Philippine Sea, after leaving Hyundai Heavy’s Ulsan yard last week, VesselsValue data shows.
The carrier owned by LNGShips will go on charter to energy giant Shell, such as its two recently delivered sister vessels, namely LNGShips Athena and LNGShips Empress.
According to TMS Cardiff Gas, the vessels feature GTT’s Mark III Flex containment system and WinGD X-DF dual-fuel, low-pressure engines.
With this delivery, TMS Cardiff Gas has a total of sixteen tankers on the water, including four 2014-built ships and the 2004-built Fuji LNG.
