VIDEO: Madrid Spirit Makes French Connection

Teekay has shared a video of its LNG carrier Madrid Spirit that was the first vessel to discharge at the new Dunkerque LNG Terminal in France on July 8.

With the arrival of the 2004-built LNG tanker, the terminal received some 130,000 m3 of LNG, originating from a liquefaction plant in Bonny, Nigeria.

Built at South Korean Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME), the vessel is 284.37 meters long and 42.5 meters wide.

The 77,213 dwt Madrid Spirit has a gross tonnage of 90,835 tonnes.

Following the Madrid Spirit, a second vessel is scheduled to arrive at the terminal in the first half of August, to carry out test runs of the whole system and performance tests. French utility company EDF Group said that the commercial operations could start at the end of September.

The Dunkerque LNG terminal is France’s fourth such terminal. It is jointly owned and operated by EDF, Fluxys and Total. The construction of the terminal started in June 2011.
