On August 23, the 174,000m3 LNG carrier "MU LAN", invested by CSSC (Hong Kong) Shipping Company Limited, and built by Hudong Zhonghua, was christened in Shanghai.
"MU LAN" is the world's mainstream 174,000m3 LNG carrier. It adopts the design and construction technology of the fourth generation LNG carrier independently developed by Hudong Zhonghua, and is equipped with the low-pressure dual-fuel main engine (X-DF).
The ship is 295m in length, 45m in width and 26.25m in depth with a speed of 19.5 knots. It is classed into LR and CCS, and meets the requirements of EEDI Phase Ⅲ as well as the latest environmental requirements of IMO.
"MU LAN" completed the sea gas trail in just nine days, setting a new record for a large LNG carrier sea gas trail project.
This ship is the first in the series of 2+1+1 LNG ships ordered by CSSC Shipping in Hudong Zhonghua. It is an important practice for CSSC to implement the national strategy of "carbon neutrality" and "peak carbon dioxide emissions", and implement the requirements of CSSC on promoting green development strategy.
Hudong Zhonghua has rich experience in the design and construction of LNG vessels. Its construction technology has reached the world advanced level. Hudong Zhonghua is the only shipbuilding company in the industry that can simultaneously build NO.96 and MARK III type membrane LNG vessels.
The company is now in the delivery season, and by the end of this year, the company will complete and deliver a number of LNG carriers, LNG bunkering vessels and LNG-FSRU, including the second LNG carrier ordered by CSSC Shipping.
