South Korean line adds to order to make it three at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries.


H-Line Shipping has signed an order for a LNG carrier newbuilding at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries.

The $190m contract was announced last Friday by Korea Shipbuilding and Offshore Engineering (KSOE) which controls the Hyundai yards.

The vessel is scheduled for delivery by November 2023 and was contracted by a “Liberian company”.

H-Line contracted two 174,000-cbm, X-DF LNG carriers at Hyundai Samho in September and December 2019 priced at about $191m each.

It was later found that the two vessels were on fixed long-term charters to trader Vitol, which also chartered a TMS Cardiff Gas newbuilding earlier that year.
