Xiamen bags first LNG carrier order

Chinese shipbuilder Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry has secured its first LNG Carrier order from Landmark Corporate Holdings, investment firm in shipping and offshore industries.

The two have signed a contract for construction of one LNG carrier of 45,000 cu m in capacity, with an option for one more carrier.

The carrier, designed by Norwegian company LNG New Technologies, is expected to be completed and delivered by  2017.

The design will pioneer the LNT A-Box containment system, which was tested by Xiamen and witnessed by class surveyors ABS, BV and DNV GL in January 2014.
