Greece’s Evalend Shipping has been linked to an order for two VLGC newbuildings announced by Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering.

The South Korean shipbuilding group said in a regulatory filing on Friday last week that an “African shipowner” had ordered the LPG dual-fuel vessels for delivery by May 2025.

Shipping sources following the LPG market named Evalend as having ordered the pair.

They said they were options that the company secured when it placed an order for three ships at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries in September.
