BW LNG names two new modern LNG carriers

August 19, 2022

We were delighted to hold the naming ceremony for two LNG newbuildings at Okpo Shipyard, DSME on August 10th.

The two Singapore-flagged vessels feature a state-of-the-art design that enables even greater focus on safe operations and flexibility, as well as the industry’s lowest fuel consumption and emissions profile.

Both ships have a carrying capacity of 174,000 cbm, and are equipped with MEGI propulsion and full reliquefaction system.

Both vessels will go straight into long-term charters with our key clients; BW ENN Snow Lotus (h2509) will be delivered to ENN and BW Cassia (h2510) will be delivered to BP.

A big thank you to our vessels’ godmothers Ms Zhang Jin, Vice Chairman of ENN Group and Mrs Carol Howle, EVP, Trading & Shipping of BP, for blessing BW ENN Snow Lotus and BW Cassia, respectively.

We are committed to providing high-quality vessels and operations to our LNG customers, and supporting the progress towards a low-carbon society.

We are grateful for DSME’s hard work in constructing these vessels. The relationship between BW and DSME is longstanding and represents a true partnership that is solution-oriented and quality-focused.
