The world’s largest shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has confirmed the order for four LNG carriers placed by Greek shipowner Capital Gas Carrier Corporation.

The construction contract is worth KRW 836.5 billion (USD 744.2 million), the shipbuilder said.

Evangelos Marinakis’ gas carrier company is scheduled to take delivery of the quartet by the end of the first half of 2021.

As World Maritime News reported earlier this month, the LNG carriers would range between 170,000 and 180,000 cbm and would include a firm order for four units and two options containing three ships respectively.

Marinakis-led vessel operator Capital Ship Management Corp has been involved in several sectors including containerships, tankers and bulkers, and the latest deal is seen as the company’s debut on the LNG market.
