Purus Marine buys two LNG carriers
London-based maritime holding company Purus Marine has acquired two 180,000 cubic metres LNG carriers (LNGCs).
Purus Marine owns environmentally-advanced vessels. It supports the maritime industry’s transition to a zero-carbon and sustainable future. Also, its climate target is for its fleet to achieve net-zero emissions within the 2030 decade.
The company says it acquired the vessels in partnership with a ship manager. Therefore, this leading ship manager will provide technical and commercial services for the LNGCs.
The delivery of the LNG carriers will take place in the third quarter of 2024. After that, they will go directly into multi-year time charters with an energy major.
“By using the latest generation of engine and energy-saving device technologies, the LNGCs are expected to be best-in-class in environmental performance,” said Julian Proctor, CEO.
“This acquisition diversifies our fleet and allows us to further support the maritime industry’s transition to a lower-carbon future,” said Svein Engh, a board member of the company.
