Teekay’s first M-type, Electronically Controlled, Gas Injection (MEGI)-powered LNG vessel, Creole Spirit, has sailed out from the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard for sea trials.
 
Creole Spirit is Teekay’s first of nine LNG newbuildings equipped with dual fuel two stroke MEGI engines from MAN Diesel & Turbo. The engines were installed shortly after the ship’s keel was laid in March.
 
The vessel is expected to enter service in January 2016 on a contract charter with Cheniere.
 
According to Teekay, Creole Spirit will be the most efficient LNG ship on the water with the lowest unit freight cost in the world fleet.
