Japan’s Mitsubishi Shipbuilding held a christening ceremony for a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carrier being built for Astomos Energy Corporation on December 13.

Named Laurel Prime, the new ship will be the seventh vessel of its type built for Astomos Energy.

The shipbuilder said that, in addition to energy saving performance, the 83,000m3 ship would have the capability to adapt flexibly to major LPG terminals worldwide, as well as to the expanded Panama Canal.

Completion and delivery of the vessel, which will be operated by Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK Line), is scheduled for the end of December, 2018.

The 48,300 dwt Laurel Prime features a length of 230 meters and a width of 36.6 meters. MHI added that the new vessel utilizes a unique hull form which provides exceptional fuel efficiency.
