Grand Elena - LNG Tanker

The Grand Elena (hull number 2229) and its sister ship the Grand Aniva are two liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers designed for the transportation of LNG from the Sakhalin II LNG terminal project in Prigorodnoye, Aniva Bay, Russia. The annual production at Sakhalin II is expected to be 9.6 million tonnes and the first shipments are due in Septem-ber 2008 (delivered to Japan, Korea and Baja California, Mexico).
The two ships were ordered in November 2004 and were constructed for a Russian-Japanese consortium consis-ting of Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) (60%) and JSC Sovcomflot (40%). The two vessels are chartered for a period of 20 years to Sakhalin Energy Investment Company (SEIC) (Gazprom 50%, Shell 27.5%, Mitsui & Co Ltd 12.5% and Mitsubishi Corporation 10%) with an option to extend to 30 years with two five-year extensions.
The two tankers were officially named and launched in a ceremony conducted on 4 October 2007 at Mitsubishi's Nagasaki shipyard, Japan. The ships were named after Mrs Elena Zolotareva, a former top-manager of Sakhalin Energy Investment, and the Aniva Bay where the vessels will be loaded with LNG.

CONSTRUCTION
The ships completed construction and began sea trials during the fourth quarter of 2007. Both of the ships are iden-tical 1C ice-class vessels (harsh winter conditions in their operational area demand robust construction for year-long use).
Each vessel carries four Moss-type spherical tanks with a total capacity of 147,000m³. The tanks are constructed from several aluminium layers, insulated with polyurethane.
The vessels are 123,000 gross registered tonnage (GRT), 36,900 net registered tonnage (NRT), with a deadweight of 71,200 tonnes and a length of 277m, moulded breadth of 49m, depth of 26.8m and a draught of 11.5m.
The vessels are powered by two steam turbines generating 23,600kW and are able to achieve a speed of 19.5k (boil-off gas will be used as a primary fuel source for the ships). The vessels are registered in Cyprus and have a crew of 40.
