Hellas Athina is a 173,400 cubic meters LNG carrier built by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries and it is undergoing the sea trial.

The vessel is built for the Greek shipowner with 299 meters long and 46 meters wide, it will be sailing under the flag of Malta.

Hellas Athina is the second vessel in the series of 2 LNG carriers under the orders to Hyundai from Latsco Shipping’s Consolidated Marine Management. They are chartered by Singaporean commodity trader Trafigura.

The first one, Hellas Diana, entered service in April this year, while the Hellas Athina is expected to operate in September.

Both vessels include WinGD’s dual-fuel X-DF engines and GTT’s Mark III Flex containment system. 

Earlier this year, Wärtsilä signed a five-year maintenance agreement with Latsco for two large LNG carriers,  the Hellas Dynasty and the Hellas Voyager.

Latsco has four very large crude carriers (VLCCs) commissioned at Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard with delivery in 2022.
