GAC Taiwan has secured an agency contract from Indonesia’s liquefied natural gas provider Donggi Senoro Liquefied Natural Gas (DSLNG).
Under the deal, GAC Taiwan would handle DSLNG’s vessel calls and provide discharge agency and husbandry services at the ports of Taichung and Yung An.
The contract win comes after the steady growth of agency business for all types of vessels, including LNG carriers, since the opening of GAC Taiwan’s shipping office in Kaohsiung in January 2017.
“Our established track record in providing ship agency services and strong commitment to HSSE (Health, Safety, Security and the Environment) enable us to meet the specialised and safety requirements of sophisticated LNG carriers,” Kenny So, GAC Taiwan’s Managing Director, said.
“Winning the DSLNG business reinforces our optimism about the future of the LNG agency business in Taiwan, which is the world’s fifth largest LNG buyer. We expect the number of LNG calls to rise, as Taiwan increases its LNG imports to drive power sector growth,” So added.
