Maran Gas Maritime, the gas carrier arm of Greece-based Angelicoussis Shipping Group, has contracted two additional LNG carriers with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.
The two ships, which were on option for Maran Gas, bring to seven the number of 159,800-cbm LNG carriers that it has ordered from DSME.
Scheduled for delivery in 2015, the two vessels take the company’s total LNG newbuilding programme to 11 units overall, with four 164,000-cbm vessels on order at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries.
Maran Gas is also known to have remaining option for one more LNG vessel at HHI.
