Worlds’ largest Multigas LNG-Ethane Carriers
The ‘Dragon’ class vessels are the largest, most flexible and advanced multigas carriers built to date. Strong relations, strategic focus and an innovative approach between Evergas & INEOS have been key elements that allowed for the creation of a seaborne pipeline bringing U.S. ethane across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe. They are a result of close collaboration with world-class makers with whom the development of these sustainable, efficient and highly advanced vessels were made possible.
