Last December our Gas team celebrated the keel laying ceremony of six LNG newbuildings – H2416/17/53/54/55/61.
Five of these 173,400 cubic meter MEGI (M-type, Electronically Controlled, Gas Injection) engine LNG newbuildings are under time-charter contracts with Royal Dutch Shell plc (Shell). The remaining, H2461, is committed to the Bahrain project.
The newbuildings are currently under construction at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in South Korea and are expected to deliver between 2017 and 2018. The six blocks, as shown in the pictures, total a significant weight of over 50 tons.
