Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering has announced it has launched a 7,500 cbm-capacity LNG bunkering vessel for Avenir LNG.

In a brief social media post, the Chinese shipyard published several images of the vessel, named Avenir Aspiration, entering the water.

As previously reported, Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering was contracted to build two 7,500 cbm-capacity LNG carriers after Avenir LNG cancelled options to build third and fourth vessels at Keppel Nantong ‘by mutual agreement’ in April 2019.

Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering is also currently building two 20,000 cbm-capacity LNG carriers for Avenir LNG.

Avenir LNG took delivery of its first LNG bunker vessel, Avenir Advantage, in October 2020. The following month, the vessel carried out its first LNG bunkering operation in Johor, Malaysia. 

In addition to the six vessels under construction, Avenir LNG is currently constructing a 10,600 cbm LNG terminal in Oristano, in which it holds an 80% equity stake, on the west coast of Sardinia, Italy.

In a social media post earlier this week, EPC contractor for the project Gas and Heat Spa – which also holds a 10% stake in the terminal - announced it had achieved ‘mechanical and electrical completion’.
