Our semi-refrigerated vessels are built to carry cargoes at a maximum pressure of about 5.4 bars, and at a minimum temperature of -48°C (for propylene).
They incorporate bi-lobe Type C storage tanks, and have the capability to load or discharge gas cargoes at both refrigerated and pressurised shore facilities.
These vessels are best used in trades whereby the customer requires the optimal solution between economies of scale and vessel capability in meeting differing cargo temperatures.
Our ethylene vessels are the largest of their kind trading on the spot market. These vessels offer the most versatile cargo handling capability of any conventional oceangoing gas carrier.
They are configured with bi-lobe insulated stainless high nickel steel tanks able to take cargoes at temperatures reaching as low as −104°C (for ethylene carriage), and at a maximum tank pressure of 5.4 bar.
The cargo tanks are served by independent pumping and piping systems; allowing vessels to carry different cargoes simultaneously, with three natural segregations, meeting the often complex needs of our customers.
Our fully refrigerated handysize gas carriers are able to transport a wide range of liquefied gases, predominately LPG and ammonia.
The cargo refrigeration systems onboard enable these vessels to efficiently handle products at their respective boiling points and atmospheric pressure. These vessels are the most cost effective for fully-refrigerated trades in the LPG and ammonia space.
