MISC Berhad (MISC) recently held a naming and delivery ceremony for its new LNG carrier, Seri Cenderawasih.
The 150 200 m3 LNG carrier is the second in a series of five Moss-type LNG carriers that MISC has ordered from Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd (HHI). Upon their delivery, these new LNG carriers will be on a long-term charter to Petronas.
Seri Cenderawasih, along with its sister vessel, Seri Camellia (launched in September 2016), will be part of the new generation of the Seri C Class LNG fleet of Moss-type vessels.
The LNG carriers form part of MISC’s long-term fleet expansion programme to cater to the energy transportation needs of Petronas.
Seri Cenderawasih will soon embark on its maiden voyage from South Korea to Bintulu, Malaysia.
Encik Md Arif Mahmood, Executive Vice President and CEO, Downstream Business of Petronas, said: “The delivery of Seri Cenderawasih augurs well for Petronas’ long partnership with MISC. As one of the leading players in the global LNG business, it is imperative for Petronas to ensure that we deliver safe and reliable supply of energy to power hundreds of industries and millions of homes around the world. The partnership with MISC has enabled Petronas to attain our aspirations and I am confident that the addition of Seri Cenderawasih to its fleet will strengthen MISC’s leadership position in the global LNG transportation business”.
