World largest Ethylene/Ethane-carrier successfully put into operation

1 Sep 2016

In August TGE Marine has supervised the successful gas trials of the first 37,300 cbm Ethylene/Ethane carrier delivered by Jiangnan Shipyard Group to Navigator Gas Ltd. The “Navigator Aurora” is the world’s largest ethylene carrier equipped with TGE bilobe type C cargo tanks, gas handling system and a high pressure LNG fuel supply package. The MAN ME-GI main engine has been tested with LNG under several load cases and the TGE fuel gas system has fulfilled all operational requirements.
The ship has been chartered by Borealis and shall transport ethane from the US to Europe starting end of 2016.
TGE’s CEO Manfred Küver commented: ”We are very pleased to have been selected again as partner by Jiangnan Shipyard and Navigator Gas as engineering contractor for the gas handling system and the most modern LNG fuel supply system for the world’s largest ethylene ship. Our partnership started already in 1997 where Navigator Gas ordered a series of 5 × 22k-LEG-carriers at Jiangnan Shipyard and these ships were for more than 15 years the largest ethylene ships of the world.”
