JOVO orders LNG carrier pair at Jiangnan Shipyard

Chinese clean energy supplier JOVO has placed an order at CSSC-affiliated Jiangnan Shipyard for the construction of two 79,800 cu m LNG carriers.

The two vessels will be used for transporting LNG from Malaysia and Indonesia upon delivery in 2021.

The ships will be the largest LNG carriers the yard has ever built. Before this order, Jiangnan has only built one 30,000 cu m LNG carrier, Hai Yang Shi You 301 for CNOOC in 2014, and the vessel is currently chartered by JOVO.

Guangzhou-based JOVO started as an LPG trader and has gradually shifted its focus to clean energy. The company operates an LNG terminal in Dongguan, which has a designed receiving capacity of 1.5m tons a year.
