MISC Berhad marks delivery of new-generation LNG carrier

During the naming ceremony of the Seri Camellia

The 150,200m3 vessel is the first in a series of five Moss-type LNG carriers ordered from South Korea's Hyundai Heavy Industries Co, Ltd (HHI). The ships are to be chartered to Malaysia's government-owned oil and gas company Petronas for the next 15 years.
Seri Camellia will be part of the new-generation Seri C-class LNG fleet, comprising Moss-type vessels – having spherical tanks – that MISC says provide a more robust and superior cargo containment system and ensure a higher degree of flexibility for operation in harsh weather conditions.
Yee Yang Chien, president and CEO of MISC, said: “The modernisation of our fleet enhances the vessels' capability of delivering to our customers’ expectations as well as incorporates state-of-the-art and eco-friendly technologies that reinforce our commitment to operate responsibly and care for the maritime environment. The naming and delivery of Seri Camellia is a major milestone for MISC.”
The new-generation LNG carriers have an integrated hull structure with four spherical tanks shielded by a continuous cover, which improves the overall structural strength of the hull, MISC says.
Among the ships’ green features are energy efficiency, emissions reductions, biodiversity management and end-of-life disposal. In addition, there is a selective catalytic reduction system for the diesel generator, complying with the latest IMO Tier III requirement, and an ozone ballast water treatment system. The carriers will be powered by an ultra-stream turbine plant, and installed with pre-swirl duct and propeller boss cap fin.
The Moss-type newbuilds are part of MISC’s long-term fleet expansion programme to cater to the energy transportation needs of Petronas. They have been designed for worldwide trading capability to enable them to call at all major LNG terminals in the world.
Following the naming ceremony, Seri Camellia embarked on its maiden voyage from South Korea to Bintulu, Malaysia. Its delivery brought the number of MISC’s LNG fleet to 26 vessels.

MISC Berhad (MISC), a Malaysia-based provider of international energy shipping and maritime solutions, has held the naming and delivery ceremony for its new LNG carrier, Seri Camellia.
