Gas Entec Co. Ltd. (Gas Entec), a subsidiary of global gas and LNG logistics company Atlantic Gulf & Pacific Company (AG&P), on Thursday (24 October) announced it has secured a contract from Sembcorp Marine Integrated Yard Pte. Ltd. (Sembcorp Marine).
Under the contract, Gas Entec will provide the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the cargo handling system for a 12,000 cubic meter LNG bunker vessel owned by Indah Singa Maritime, a subsidiary of Mitsui OSK Lines, operating out of Singapore.
“Gas Entec is honoured to work with Sembcorp Marine for the landmark 12,000 CBM LNG bunker vessel project, which will be the largest bunker ship to operate in Asia when it enters in service in 2021,” said Chong-Ho Kwak, Chief Executive Officer of Gas Entec.
“We are excited to be a part of this prestigious project and will continue to work very hard to deliver to the immense responsibility and trust placed on us.”
The LNG bunker vessel will be built at Sembcorp Marine Tuas Boulevard Yard in Singapore, where Gas Entec engineers will work with their counterparts to oversee the cargo handling project.
The vessel, measuring 112m long x 22m wide, will use GTT Flex III membrane technology for the cargo containment tanks and will have dual-fuel engines running on LNG or marine diesel oil for cleaner propulsion.
