Dutch gas carrier operator Anthony Veder said it is expanding its fleet with a 30,000-cbm liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier that is currently being constructed by China's Zhejiang Xinle Shipbuilding in Ningbo.

The vessel will be completed by Zhejiang Xinle Shipbuilding under supervision of Anthony Veder and is expected to be ready for worldwide trading in the summer of 2019, said a press release from the operator of gas tankers in all the segments of gas shipping, from LPG shipping to LNG shipping and from CO2 shipping to ethylene shipping.

After delivery it will be renamed with a Coral name. Anthony Veder will handle the commercial operation and ship management, it said.

"We are proud to add a new LNG carrier to our fleet in this relatively short time frame and look forward to our close cooperation with Xinle Shipbuilding to finalize the vessel", says Jan Valkier, CEO of Anthony Veder.

"Our company has a long history in building and delivering ships in China such as the LNG-fuelled LEG vessels Coral Star and Coral Sticho. We are excited to return to China for this latest addition to our fleet after five years of absence," Valkier added.
