Malaysia's MISC takes delivery of two LNGCs
Malaysian shipping firm MISC has taken delivery of two of its latest new generation of LNG carriers (LNGCs), Seri Damai and Seri Daya, it said on January 31.
These 174,000 m3 LNGCs were built for MISC by Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries Co. The carriers will be on long-term charters to ExxonMobil’s wholly-owned subsidiary, SeaRiver Maritime (SRM) and will be managed by Eaglestar Shipmanagenent. The deal between MISC and SRM was signed in 2019. The two parties signed another charter deal last year.
The LNGCs have enhanced cargo tank insulation with the GTT Mark-III Flex PLUS cargo containment system which reduces the boil-off rate to 0.07% of cargo volume per day for improved efficiency, MISC said.
Powered by WinGD X-DF propulsion, the vessels fulfill the International Maritime Organisation’s Tier-III emission requirements without any external exhaust gas after-treatment system, MISC added.
With the addition of Seri Damai and Seri Daya, MISC now has 31 LNGCs in its fleet.
