In August 2007 the 17,000 cbm LEG/LPG carrier “CLIPPER HEBE” has been completed at the German MEYER YARD. The ship is the first of a series of four gas carriers for the Norwegian Shipowner Solvang ASA.
The length over all of this ship is 154.9m, the beam 22.7m. The speed is 17.7 kn. The draught for Ethylene loading is 8.1 m and for VCM loading 10.6 m.
During gas trial at Rafnes in Norway the gas plant has been tested successfully with Ethylene cargo under supervision of TGE engineers and has proven its excellent performance.
The TGE scope comprises detail engineering, the design of the cargo handling system and of cargo deck tanks and the delivery of the gas handling equipment. Furthermore the construction, pre-commissioning, commissioning and performance tests where supervised by TGE.
The cargo tanks and other components for this ship have been supplied by Neptun Yard at Rostock / Warnemünde, a sister company of Meyer Yard at Papenburg.
