Tristar adds first LNG carrier to fleet

UAE-headquartered  Tristar Group has announced that it has taken delivery of the 2008-built 155,000 cu m LNG carrier Tristar Ruby, formerly known as British Ruby, to its fleet.

The vessel, acquired from French bank Societe Generale, is the first LNG carrier in Tristar’s fleet which consists of 30 tankers.

The Tristar Ruby will go on long-term time charter with BP Shipping, and will be technically managed by Wilhelmsen Ship Management and commercially operated by Tristar.
