LNG Carrier Seri Cempaka Joins MISC Berhad’s Fleet


Malaysia’s MISC Berhad (MISC) took delivery of the third in a series of five Moss-Type Seri-C Class liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers, Seri Cempaka, on July 27.

Featuring 150,200 cbm, the new LNG carrier was constructed by South Korea’s shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and benefits from an Integrated Hull Structure (IHS) with four spherical tanks shielded by a continuous cover, fortifying the vessel to allow for operation in the harshest marine environments.

The Malaysian-flagged Seri Cempaka joins its sister Moss-Type newbuilds Seri Cenderawasih and Seri Camellia on long-term charter to oil and gas company Petronas.

The newbuilds are part of MISC’s long term fleet expansion programme and have been designed for worldwide trading capability to enable them to call at 80 LNG receiving terminals and 26 liquefaction terminals in operation worldwide.

Along with the unique integrated hull design, the Moss-Type vessels have been designed to minimise hull resistance, increase propulsion efficiency, reduce power requirements, and reduce CO2 emissions.

The delivery of Seri Cempaka brings the current number of MISC’s LNG fleet to 27 vessels. A further two Moss-Type Seri C Class vessels are under construction in South Korea.
