Teekay's first MEGI LNG carrier completes sea trials

South Korean shipbuilding giant Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) said it has completed sea and gas trials of Teekay’s LNG newbuild, Creole Spirit.

The vessel is first of Teekay’s nine LNG carriers to be equipped with dual fuel two stroke M-type, Electronically Controlled, Gas Injection (MEGI) twin engines from MAN Diesel & Turbo.

The construction of the 174,000 cbm capacity Creole Spirit started in March with the vessel’s launching taking place in May.

Creole Spirit sailed out from the DSME shipyard for sea trials in October. The shipbuilder said in its statement that sea trials were completed at the end of November.

The vessel is expected to enter service in January next year on a contract charter with Houston-based LNG player Cheniere.
