New vessels for GAZOCEAN by 2027


GAZOCEAN is pleased to announce its Shareholder and Owner NYK has signed long-term charter contracts for four new liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers with EnBW Energie Baden-Wuerttemberg AG (hereafter EnBW), a major German energy company.
These 4 vessels will be built at HD Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. in South Korea and will be completed in sequence during 2027.
The 174,000 cubic meter capacity membrane-type tanks will be made of advanced insulating materials that reduce the vaporization rate.
They will be propelled by fuel efficient dual-fuel slow-speed two-stroke marine engines. They will also feature a shaft generator and air lubrication system (ALS) to reduce the resistance between ship’s hull and seawater, making the ships more environmentally-friendly than conventional LNG carriers.
The four vessels will be French flagged and fully ship managed by GAZOCEAN in Marseille.
