Chinese yard delivers first FSRU for Dynagas

Chinese shipbuilder Hudong-Zhonghua said on July 19 it had delivered the first of two floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs) ordered by Greek shipowner Dynagas.

A ceremony for the delivery of the 174,000-m3 Transgas Power FSRU took place at Hudong-Zhonghua's shipyard in Shanghai on July 15. The vessel is 294 m long and 47 m wide, and has been classified by the American Bureau of Shipping.

Dynagas is due to receive a second FSRU from Hudong-Zhonghua, Transgas Force, in April next year. The Greek company currently has a fleet of 10 LNG carriers (LNGCs).

Hudong-Zhonghua, a unit of China State Shipbuilding, secured an order for three 174,000-m3 LNGCs from an undisclosed customer in late June.
