The new long-term agreement and the related upgrade works are expected to optimise the performance and operational efficiency of TMS' vessels.

The LNG vessel sector currently places a large amount of emphasis on the availability and reliability of its ships.

"Through our partnership with GE for the next decade, we are confident that our fleet will continue to be a premium choice of our customers for their cargo needs."

TMS Cardiff Gas deputy chief operating officer Alexandros Politis-Kalenteris said: “Our vision is to be one of the world’s leading LNG and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) operators, with the highest standards of excellence in terms of performance, reliability and safety.

“The maintenance and upgrade services of such sophisticated equipment are technically challenging and require a professional and capable partner to ensure the vessels’ operability.

“Through our partnership with GE for the next decade, we are confident that our fleet will continue to be a premium choice of our customers for their cargo needs.”

The four TMS vessels are known as Corcovado, Kita, Palu and Yari, and all feature electric propulsion systems provided by GE.
