GasLog Takes Delivery of New LNG Carrier

Gaslog Genoa


Greece-based owner and operator of LNG carriers GasLog Ltd has expanded its fleet with its latest newbuilding, the Gaslog Genoa.

The company took delivery of the new liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier from South Korea’a shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries on March 29.

The Bermuda-flagged carrier with XDF propulsion was named at the shipyard a few days earlier, on March 27.

Featuring a length of 293 meters and a beam of 45.8 meters, Gaslog Genoa has a capacity of 174,000 cbm.

The unit is part of an order placed with the shipbuilder in May 2014. At the time, GasLog ordered two vessels, and secured two additional priced options from Samsung.

Earlier in March, GasLog expanded its orderbook with a new 180,000 cubic meter Flex Plus vessel with XDF propulsion from Samsung Heavy Industries.

The newbuild, Hull No. 2274, is scheduled to be handed over in the second quarter of 2020 and is currently unchartered. The deal also includes options for additional vessels.
