The pair of 174,000 cu m membrane-type tank LNG carrier is priced at a total of KRW400bn ($360m), scheduled for delivery from SHI in 2021.
The two LNG carriers will be equipped with a WinGD-made fuel slow-speed diesel engine that has fuel consumption efficiency and can operate on marine gas oil or boil off gas stored in the cargo tank. The carriers will also feature a re-liquefaction system that can use surplus boil-off gas effectively.
Total Gas & Power Chartering Limited will charter the LNG carriers.
The latest deal brings SHI’s new order total for 2018 to 44 vessels valued at $5.4bn, including 13 LNG carriers, 13 containerships, 15 tankers, and three special purpose ships.
