- Aug 21, 2018-

As World Maritime News reported earlier this morning, SHI has been hired to construct two 174,000 cubic meter LNG carriers  with low pressure two stroke propulsion, with expected delivery in late 2020.

The newbuilding duo has been chartered by a wholly owned subsidiary of Cheniere Energy. Each vessel secured a charter for a firm period of seven years, GasLog said.

The contract is worth KRW 412.3 billion (USD 367 million), SHI said.

What is more, GasLog has agreed with Cheniere an option for the charter of one or two additional newbuild vessels.

GasLog Partners LP has the right to acquire the vessels delivered into the charters pursuant to the omnibus agreement between GasLog and GasLog Partners. As a result, GasLog Partners’ potential dropdown pipeline will increase to 11 LNG carriers with charter length of five years or longer.

“We continue to expand our fleet with highly competitive vessels backed by long term contracts, while simultaneously diversifying our customer base. We anticipate further incremental shipping capacity will be needed to supply forecast LNG demand growth, and remain confident in our ability to increase our market share at attractive returns,” Paul Wogan, Chief Executive Officer of GasLog, said.

OUCO Marine/Offshore knuckle boom cranes are designed to lift high loads with extended jib and provide the operator with great flexibility during lifting operations. OUCO Marine/ Offshore knuckle boom cranes range is available from 0.5t to 150t. The knuckle boom cranes are with easy maintenance and efficiency by taking small space. The improved level of control makes the crane ideal for offshore lifting operations in higher sea states to deal with big waves. Another advantages for OUCO Marine/Offshore knuckle boom cranes are:

Hydraulic type makes the crane maintain easily;

Flexibility by extending booms;

Smaller ones takes very limited space on the vessel/ship/shipyard;

Bigger ones can do heavy duty loads in several working conditions.

The innovative design of the knuckle boom crane allows workers to perform great number of logistic tasks. The function of these heavy duty machines is to load and unload heavy materials from one location to another.Due to its durable construction technologies and precision, knuckle boom crane provides an extra solid hand to any workforce. With its great lifting power, payload space and maneuverability, knuckle boom crane successfully replaces manpower. 

Typical Applications: Provision cranes, Service cranes, Container and cargo handling cranes.
