UK-based small scale LNG supply specialist Avenir LNG has announced the launching of its third 7,500m3 dual-purpose, LNG supply and bunkering vessel, Avenir Aspiration at Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering Co.
Avenir Aspiration will now undergo final outfitting before commissioning, and gas and sea trials in time for a mid-2021 delivery. Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering Co. is building an additional 7,500m3 and two 20,000m3-capacity LNG carriers all for delivery later this year, bringing Avenir’s total fleet to 6 specialised LNG vessels.
Peter Mackey, CEO Avenir LNG, commented, “We are delighted with the successful launching of our third vessel. Congratulations to our Partners at CIMC SOE for reaching this important milestone. Our fleet is the backbone of Avenir’s asset-enabled LNG supply strategy, and we look forward to taking delivery of the Avenir Aspiration later in the year.”
