Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has secured orders for two 174,000m3 LNG carriers from MISC Berhad (MISC), a provider of energy related maritime solutions and services.

The LNG carriers will be used by ExxonMobil to transport its global LNG production. The vessels are fitted with a re-liquefaction system that is applied to the latest membrane cargo tank-type MarkⅢ Flex PLUS to reduce boil-off gas and feature Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS), which meet IMO regulations.

Furthermore, SVESSEL, a smart ship solution independently developed by Samsung, enables ships to effectively and economically sail to reduce fuel consumption by automatically planning optimal sea routes.

"Driven by the tendency that main specifications for SHI's LNGCs (MarkⅢ cargo tanks and X-DF dual fuel engines) have rapidly gained trust and become mainstream in the LNGC market, we expect additional orders. Therefore, we will secure our place as a frontrunner in the LNGC market with our technological prowess," said an official of SHI.
