Jeppe Jensen-led Celsius Tankers is focusing on LNG carriers and industrial shipping as it inches closer to its gas fleet ambition.

Speaking to TradeWinds after firming up its 14th LNG carrier newbuilding at Samsung Heavy Industries, Celsius chairman Jensen said the company is moving away from conventional tramp shipping and towards newbuildings fixed against long-term charters. “That is really our focus for the time being,” he said.
