South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries has splashed the newest LNG carrier for Oslo-listed ship owner and operator Flex LNG.

The newbuilding number 8010, to be named Flex Aurora, was launched at the HHI’s yard on September 6.

With a cargo capacity of 174,000 cbm, the new two stroke vessel features a low pressure X-DF engine and is one of the first uncommitted vessel with this kind of motor technology entering the market, according to Flex LNG.

Once fully refurbished and mobilized it will be available for business at the end of the second quarter of 2020.

The vessel is one of two newbuildings under construction purchased by Flex LNG in May 2018 at a price of USD 184 million per unit.

Flex Aurora’s sister vessel, to be named Flex America, is scheduled for delivery in August 2020.

Both newbuildings are fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to comply with IMO Tier III regulation both in gas and liquid mode giving them high trading flexibility.
