Saga LNG Shipping’s 45,000-cbm liquefied natural gas carrier has been launched at the Haimen-based shipbuilder China Merchants Heavy Industry.

The vessel named Saga Dawn, features a patented LNG tank system named LNT A-Box, developed by the independent marine engineering company FKAB, making it the first vessel of its kind.

The LNG tank designer noted that the construction is set to be finalized during the next year.

The vessel concept is named LNT 45 and was developed by FKAB together with LNT New Technologies. FKAB has been involved both in the project to design the LNG tanks and the Basic Design of the vessel. Through FKAB’s offices in Sweden and China, FKAB has delivered both Basic Design & Extended Basic Design to the shipyard.

Saga LNG Shipping intends to build, own and operate a series of small and mid-sized LNG assets, targeting projects in various stages of development.

Types of assets included in Saga LNG’s scope are LNGCs, FSUs, FSRUs, and LNG bunker vessels, all within the 1,000 to 100,000 cubic meter range.
