- Jun 04, 2018-

180601.jpgOrdered by the joint venture of Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL), China COSCO Shipping Corporation Limited (CCSC) and China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (SINOPEC), CESI Lianyungang is the sixth vessel in the China LNG Transportation Project.

The 174,100 cbm newbuild will sail under a long-term charter transporting LNG that SINOPEC purchases from the Australia Pacific LNG Project. With a length of 290 meters and a width of 45.6 meters, CESI Lianyungang can reach a speed of 19.5 knots.

The abovementioned project follows the ExxonMobil LNG project which included the construction of four LNG carriers delivered by Hudong by April 2016.

The five vessels already delivered for the project are jointly owned by MOL (20%), CCSC and SINOPEC (80%).

MOL is currently involved in the operation of 96 LNG carriers — including FSRUs — and vessels under construction.

To ensure a good penetration and good filling, the grabs have high dead weight. The spaces between the shells are relative 7EC153A39B76F4A1B18C26E907AAFC1A.pngsmall to minimise the risk of material loss.

The grab hydraulic cylinders are fitted with replaceable piston rod protections and are hydraulically cushioned. Wide opening ranges guarantee a good penetration and release behavior. 

The orange peel grabs are available with rotator or integrated rotation (heavy duty) with sturdy slewing, depending on the type.
The heavy duty version features solid end stops, accurate fittings, reinforced bolts and large bearing surfaces amongst others.
