SHANGHAI, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- China's shipbuilder Hudong-Zhonghua has named its self-developed 4th generation liquified natural gas (LNG) carrier "Dubhe" at the Changxing shipbuilding yard in Shanghai.

The 174,000-cubic-meter vessel, set to transport LNG from the Yamal project in Russia to China, is the first of its kind among four LNG carriers made by the company.

With the lastest power system and tank devices, the 295-m long Dubhe is 45 m at the beam and can operate at a speed of up to 21 knots.

As one of the major shipbuilding subsidiaries of China State Shipbuilding Corporation Limited, Hudong-Zhonghua has built China's first LNG carrier and developed 250,000-cubic-meter LNG supertankers, as well as icebreaking ARC7 LNG carriers. Enditem
