South Korea’s shipbuilding giant Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has booked a new liquefied natural gas carrier (LNG) order from Greek shipping company Maran Gas Maritime, a unit of Angelicoussis Shipping Group.

DSME said on Thursday that it won an order for a 174,000 cbm LNG carrier. The LNG carrier will be built at the Geoje Okpo Shipyard and delivered to the owner by the fourth quarter of 2021.

This latest vessel will be equipped with DSMEs advanced partial re-liquefaction system (A-PRS).

Maran Gas has ordered six out of the seven LNG carriers DSME booked this year. DSME added that the two companies are in discussion for additional vessel orders.

The shipbuilder’s 2019 orderbook currently stands at around $3 billion and includes 17 vessels, seven of which are LNG carriers. Other vessels on order include ultra-large crude oil carriers and submarines.

To remind, the last time Maran Gas ordered an LNG carrier from DSME was back in June this year.
