A joint venture between Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) and China Shipping Group has signed a contract for three ice class LNG carriers.

The 299m long vessels, which are intended for the Russian Yamal LNG project, will be built by Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME).

They will have independent ice-breaking capabilities that enable them to sail in icy seas ice up to 2.1m thick, and will transport LNG from the Yamal LNG plant at the Port of Sabetta to main LNG markets around the world.

During the summer period, the carriers will also be capable of independently sailing on the Northern sea route to transport LNG to East Asia.
