Gas carrier owner and operator TMS Cardiff Gas has boosted its newbuilding tally at Korean yards with an order for two more LNG carriers.

Based on the company’s website, the two 174,000 cbm LNG carriers featuring XDF propulsion, will be delivered in 2020.

Namely, the Greek shipowner has returned to Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) and Hyundai Heavy Industries Group for an additional LNG carrier respectively. Hyundai’s Samho Heavy Industries will be in charge of building one of the ships, based on the data from Asiasis.

Cardiff Gas kick started its newbuilding ordering campaign last January, when it inked a construction contract with HHI for a 174,000 cbm LNG carrier slated for delivery in 2020. Upon delivery the vessel is set to start its seven-year charter with TOTAL Gas & Power Chartering.

The Greek gas carrier owner resumed its ordering streak in July, when it added three more LNG carriers to the orderbook.

World Maritime News is yet to receive a comment from the company on the order.

According to VesselsValue, the newbuild ships range in value from USD 185 to 190 million.

According to the latest information on the company’s website, the company’s fleet is comprised of seven newbuilding LNG carriers, five second-hand LNG carriers and two LPG carriers.
