The 180,000 cubic meter GasLog Wales will join GasLog’s fleet on May 11, 2020, the LNG shipper said on Thursday.
Once delivered, the vessel will start its 12-year charter with Japan’s LNG trading giant Jera as part of a deal signed in March last year.
The newbuild features GTT’s Mark III Flex Plus containment system and low-pressure two-stroke (X-DF) propulsion. This will be GasLog’s second delivery this year as the GasLog Windsor joined its fleet on April 1.
Gaslog has a further five vessels on order at Samsung Heavy.
These LNG tankers are scheduled for delivery during 2020-2021.
