BW Pavilion Names Two LNG Carriers

BW Pavilion Names Two LNG Carriers

BW Pavilion LNG Pte. Ltd., a joint venture between BW Group and Pavilion Energy, held a shipnaming ceremony at Hyundai Heavy Industries Shipyard for two Singapore-flagged LNG newbuildings, the BW Pavilion Vanda and BW Pavilion Leeara.

The Singapore-flagged LNG newbuildings will add to the JV’s fleet currently on water. Classed by DNV-GL, the newbuildings feature low boil-off rates (BOR), hybrid low-duty (LD) compressors, which reduce the amount of fuel needed to cool the vessel’s liquefied natural gas cargo, and a ballast water treatment system that is fully compliant with the International Maritime Organisation’s Ballast Water performance standards. Both vessels are designed to comply with new Panama Canal requirements and are certified for possible future transit through the canal.

Seah Moon Ming, Pavilion Energy Group Chief Executive Officer, said: “With growing Asian LNG demand, the delivery of the new LNG vessels is a significant milestone in Pavilion Energy’s capability build-up, as part of our plans to be an integrated LNG company.”
