Bermuda-based owner and operator of LNG carriers Teekay LNG Partners informed that its first LNG icebreaker recently completed gas trials.
The company shared some drone photos of the newbuilding’s gas trials.
Eduard Toll is Teekay’s first of six 172,000 cubic meter ARC7 LNG carriers being constructed for the Yamal LNG project located on the Yamal Peninsula in Northern Russia.
Launched at South Korean Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in January 2017, Eduard Toll has a length of 298 meters and a width of 45.8 meters. The Bahama-flagged ship is scheduled for delivery in January 2018, according to data provided by VesselsValue.
Expected to produce 16.5 million metric tons of LNG annually, the project encompasses fifteen newbuildings awarded to Sovcomflot, MOL, Teekay and Dynagas. The vessels will be built to dual Bureau Veritas/Russian Register class.
