Diamond LNG Shipping 6 joint venture takes delivery of LNG carrier

Diamond LNG Shipping 6, a joint venture formed by Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK), Mitsubishi Corporation, and Malaysia’s Asia LNG Transport Dua (ALT Dua), took delivery of a new LNG carrier on Wednesday, July 28.

Diamond Gas Victoria will transport LNG from British Columbia for the LNG Canada project, as well as from other locations around the world, under a long-term time-charter contract with Mitsubishi’s wholly owned subsidiary Diamond Gas International.

The vessel has an LOA of 297.16 metres, a beam of 46.4 metres, a total cargo capacity of 174,000 cubic metres, and a dual-fuel engine. The cargo tanks are fitted with a re-liquefaction system to reduce the risk of boil-off.

Diamond Gas Victoria was built by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries and will sail under the Singaporean flag.
