Samsung Heavy lays keel for Celsius Tankers’ third LNG newbuild
South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries has laid the keel for the third newbuild LNG carrier being built for the Copenhagen-based Celsius Tankers.
The Danish company has made its entry into the LNG shipping market with its first order for a pair of liquefied natural gas tankers at the South Korean shipyard in August last year.
It followed up with a second order for another pair of LNG tankers in January this year.
According to a brief statement by a Celsius Tankers’ official the keel-laying ceremony was held on Monday, November 25.
The vessel, being built under the hull number SN2313, will have the capacity to transport 180,000 cubic meters and feature Mark-Ⅲ Flex type containment system with the re-liquefaction capability to lower the boil-off rate.
