Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has signed new contracts with Maran Gas Maritime and Maran Tankers Management for the construction of two ME-GI powered LNG carriers and two VLCCs, both ship types with a number of options. Maran Gas Maritime has already four ME-GI powered LNG carriers on order at DSME.

Maran Gas Maritime is the LNG shipping company of Angelicoussis Shipping Group, Greece’s largest shipowner, and Maran Tankers Management is the tanker arm of Angelicoussis.

The newbuildings are described as the next generation of eco-friendly vessels meeting IMO Tier III.

The 173,400 cbm LNG carriers – length 295 m and breadth 46 m – will each be fitted with MAN B&W 2 x 5G70ME-C9.5-GI gas and fuel burning engines fulfilling IMO Tier III by EGR in both gas and fuel mode. This engine type is expected to raise fuel efficiency significantly compared to a standard LNG carrier, while at the same time lowering emissions.

The 318,000 dwt VLCCs – length 336 m and breadth 60 m – will each be powered by a single MAN B&W 7G80ME-C9.5 high-efficiency engine fitted with the latest fuel saving technologies and an exhaust gas recirculation system ensuring Tier III compliance.

The LNG carriers are slated for delivery in 2019 and the VLCCs are due in the first half of 2018.
