The new 24000 cubic meters ethane/ethylene carriers will be completely designed by CIMC SOE, which is a comprehensive improvement over the 22000 cubic meters ethane/ethylene carriers on the market: the cabin capacity has been upgraded from the original 22000 cubic meters to 24000 cubic meters, and the fuel consumption has been significantly reduced under the premise of keeping design speed unchanged, which meets the current international environmental protection regulations for ships, and meets the EEDI Stage 3 and IMO TIER III emission requirements.

As one of the world’s largest liquefied gas vessel owners/charterers/LPG trades, with more than 30 years of experience in liquefied gas vessel operations, we are committed to reducing the negative impact of the development of the shipping industry on the environment and have the youngest and most energy-efficient ethane/ethylene fleet in the industry. Giles Fearn, CEO of Petredec said: “we are delighted to establish this partnership with CIMC SOE. We are also expanding our ethane/ethylene fleet to strengthen Petredec’s leadership position in the liquefied gas vessel market. With continued strong growth in U.S. ethane/ethylene exports in recent years, while fleet growth is limited over the next five years market, our ethane/ethylene fleet is expected to continue to benefit.”
