DSME Wins LNG Carrier Order from Maran Gas
South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has received a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier order from Maran Gas Maritime, part of Angelicoussis Shipping Group.
DSME said that the order from the Greek shipping company is for a 174,000 cbm LNG carrier.
The shipbuilder would construct the unit at its Geoje Okpo Shipyard. The new vessel is scheduled for delivery by the fourth quarter of 2021.
The vessel will be equipped with DSMEs advanced partial re-liquefaction system (A-PRS).
Maran Gas has ordered six out of the seven LNG carriers DSME booked this year.
DSME's 2019 order-book currently stands at around USD 3 billion and includes 17 vessels, seven of which are LNG carriers.
