SHI lays keel for Celsius Tankers’ LNG newbuild
South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries has laid the keel for one of the Copenhagen-based Celsius Tankers’ newbuild LNG carriers.
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, October 28.
The vessel 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.
