GasLog takes delivery of Centrica-chartered GasLog Windsor
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipper GasLog said it has taken delivery of a newbuild vessel from the South Korean Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard.
GasLog said in a statement that the GasLog Windsor has joined its fleet on April 1. The vessel completed sea trials earlier in February.
Powered by a low-pressure dual-fuel engine, GasLog Windsor is capable of transporting 180,000 cubic meters of the chilled fuel.
Upon delivery will be chartered to Pioneer Shipping Limited, a unit of UK-based Centrica. The shipper signed a charter deal with Centrica for an initial period of about seven years.
Despite the industrial disruption in South Korea caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, the vessel was delivered on time and on budget, GasLog noted in its statement.
