MISC Berhad Names New LNG Carrier Seri Camellia

Malaysia International Shipping Corporation (MISC Berhad) held the naming and delivery ceremony of its new liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier Seri Camellia.

Seri Camellia will now depart on its maiden voyage from South Korea to Bintulu, Malaysia.

The 150,200 cbm carrier is the first in a series of five MOSS-Type LNG carriers ordered from South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries as part of the company’s long term fleet expansion programme.

The new LNG carriers will be chartered to the Malaysian oil and gas company Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS) for the next 15 years.

Seri Camellia will be part of MISC Berhad’s new generation Seri C Class LNG fleet, comprising MOSS-Type vessels that provide “a more robust and superior cargo containment system,” according to the shipowner.

“The new generation of LNG carriers incorporate state-of-the art technologies in various forms including the Integrated Hull Structure (IHS) with four spherical tanks shielded by the continuous cover, which improves the overall structural strength of the hull,” MISC said.

Additional green technology features adopted for the new carriers include energy efficiency, emissions reductions, biodiversity management and end-of-life disposal.

These also include the installation of the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system for the diesel generator to comply with the latest IMO Tier III requirement and the Ozone Ballast Water Treatment System.

The carriers will be powered by an Ultra Stream Turbine (UST) plant, and installed with pre-swirl duct and Propeller Boss Cap Fin (PBCF), MISC said.
