TGE Marine signs contracts for the world’s largest ethane carriers for Navigator Gas

24 Jan 14

On 9 January, TGE Marine Gas Engineering signed the contracts for one firm and three optional vessels for the design and supply of the cargo handling systems, high pressure fuel gas systems including LNG fuel tanks and tank material packages for the next generation of ethane/ethylene carriers of 35,000 m3 capacity with Jiangnan Shipyard Group. The ships were ordered by Navigator Gas Ltd. and shall be delivered in 2016.

In close co-operation with owner and shipyard, TGE Marine has participated in the development of this new eco design based on slow speed dual fuel main engines. The ship is a 3 tank version with a maximum individual tank size of more than 12,000 m3 and will consequently be the world’s largest type C tank based gas carrier. TGE Marine is currently developing conceptual designs for even larger ethane carriers.

“We are delighted to have, once again, successfully worked together with Jiangnan Shipyard and Navigator Gas on this series of new ships, which may create a new type of commodity trade for large quantities of ethane from the US to Europe or Asia” commented Manfred Küver, TGE Marine’s CEO. “TGE Marine and Jiangnan Shipyard have worked on joint projects for more than 25 years with a proven track record of 20 gas carriers being finalised and 10 under construction for the international markets.”
