A naming ceremony for GasLog’s newest liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier with XDF propulsion was recently held at the Samsung Heavy Industries’ shipyard in South Korea.

The 174,000-cbm newbuild GasLog Genoa was named on March 27 and delivered to its owner on March 29, the Monaco-based LNG shipping company said on Tuesday.

The LNG carrier powered by a low-pressure dual-fuel engine has been previously chartered for a long-term period by the Hague-based LNG giant Shell.

According to GasLog, the vessel has a low boil-off rate of 0.085% and is equipped with an onboard reliquefaction plant.

The vessel data provided by VesselsValue shows that the LNG tanker is currently worth at around $188.8 million.

With the latest addition, GasLog’s total fleet consists of 27 LNG carriers with 23 vessels on the water and 4 on order, according to the shipping company’s website.
