DSME Nets First LNG Carrier Order in 2015

South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has received an order for a 174,000 cbm LNG carrier worth around USD 200 million, the company’s first LNG carrier order in 2015.

DSME did not disclose the name of the client.

The new LNG carrier will be equipped with the in-house LNG supply system, which according to DSME offers 20% less fuel consumption compared to Dual Fuel Diesel Electric (DFDE) engines, as well as reduces the carbon dioxide, sulphur and nitrogen emissions by 30%.

The shipbuilder says that daily bunker expenses can be reduced to USD 15,000 a day if the ship’s speed is kept at 12 knots.

Last year, DSME received orders for a total of 37 LNG carriers, including the four to be built for Korea Line Corporation and Hyundai LNG as part of the Kogas tender awarded earlier last year.
