MISC Berhad Adds Its Fourth Moss-Type LNG Carrier

Malaysia’s MISC Berhad (MISC) took delivery of the fourth in a series of five Moss-type Seri C Class liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers, the Seri Camar, on February 28.

The 150,200 cbm vessel, built by Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), benefits from an Integrated Hull Structure (IHS) with four spherical tanks shielded by a continuous cover, fortifying the vessel to allow for operation in even the harshest marine environments.

Seri Camar joins its sister newbuilds Seri Cenderawasih, Seri Camellia and Seri Cempaka on long-term charter to Malaysia’s oil and gas major Petronas.

Owned by MISC, the Malaysian-flagged carrier was delivered at a naming ceremony held at the HHI yard in Ulsan, South Korea.

The MOSS-Type vessels have been designed to minimise hull resistance, increase propulsion efficiency, reduce power requirements, and reduce CO2 emissions.

The latest addition bring the current number of MISC’s LNG fleet to 28 vessels.
