The hull form has been optimized for the vessel’s intended trading areas, allowing a significant increase in cargo carrying capacity, still meeting the required restrictions at load and discharge ports.
Giles Fearn, Petredec’s Chief Executive said “We are extremely pleased to have completed this sizeable or der for vessels that will be by far the best in class. The extra cargo capacity and superior speed and consumption, compared with the existing (large Pressurized) fleet, gives Petredec a huge competitive advantage. With the continued and rapid expansion of LPG exports we see the 11,000cbm’s as our Pressurized work horses, allowing us to not only optimize within existing trade routes but also break bulk and service our customers globally”
Petredec is the world’s leading independent LPG Logistics company. Delivering over 10 million tonnes of LPG (liquefied propane and butane) annually and with a controlled fleet of over 50 gas carriers, as well as a rapidly growing downstream presence (LPG terminals and distribution), Petredec continues to be an industry leader.
