Malaysia International Shipping Corporation Berhad (MISC Berhad), a shipping arm of Petronas, held the naming and delivery ceremony of its new liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier Seri Cenderawasih in Ulsan, South Korea.

The 150,200 cbm carrier is the second in a series of five MOSS-type LNG carriers ordered from South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries. Upon their delivery, these new vessels will be on a long-term charter to Petronas.

Seri Cenderawasih, along with its sister vessel, Seri Camellia that was launched in September last year, will be part of the new generation of the Seri C Class LNG fleet of MOSS-type ships.

These newbuilds, which are part of MISC’s long term fleet expansion programme to cater to the energy transportation needs of Petronas, have been designed for worldwide trading capability to enable them to call at all major LNG terminals in the world.

“The naming and delivery of Seri Cenderawasih today marks another milestone for MISC in our journey towards sustainable LNG shipping and strengthening our leading position in the global LNG shipping business,” Yee Yang Chien, President/Group CEO of MISC, said.

Upon the completion of its naming ceremony today, Seri Cenderawasih will embark on its maiden voyage from South Korea to Bintulu, Malaysia.

With this delivery, MISC’s fleet of LNG vessels increases to 27. The remaining three vessels that are currently under construction in South Korea will be completed on a staggered basis and delivered to MISC in due course, according to the company.
