LNG carrier with 162,000 metres capacity ordered from Hyundai Heavy Industries by OSC
The Oman Shipping Company (OSC) has signed an order for a new build LNG carrier with Hyundai Heavy based in Ulsan, South Korea.
The LNG carrier, for delivery in 2014, will have a 162,000 cubic metres capacity, and is to be fitted out with dual fuel engines.
The new ship will comply with European ‘Green Certificate’ requirements, and will have accommodation as a training vessel for up to six trainees and an instructor at any one time.
OSC already owns and operates a fleet of five LNG carriers, which are all technically managed in-house by Oman Ship Management Company.
Oman Shipping Company is a closed joint stock company, incorporated in 2003 and owned by the Government of Oman through the Ministry of Finance (80 per cent) and Oman Oil (20 per cent).
