Flex LNG, the company controlled by billionaire John Fredriksen and an emerging player in the LNG shipping business, saw another one of its newbuilds hit the water at the South Korean Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard. 

Flex LNG noted in a brief statement through its social media channels that the newbuilding number 2480, to be named Flex Resolute, has been launched on January 5.

Flex Resolute is a 173,400 cbm two-stroke vessel fitted with a full reliquefaction system (MEGI-FRS) giving a boil off rate (BOR) of 0.035 percent.

Once fully refurbished and mobilized the vessel will be available for business in the third quarter of 2020.

The vessel is being built in tandem with the Flex Artemis, a 173,400-cbm LNG carrier fitted with a high-pressure two-stroke slow-speed propulsion system (ME-GI) that will serve the long-term charter with Gunvor following delivery scheduled for August 2020.
