Bureau Veritas classes Evergas' multi-gas carrier

Classification society Bureau Veritas informed it is classing the first ethane-powered ship.

JS Ineos Insight is the first of a series of eight 27,500 cbm multi-gas Dragon-class vessels being built at Sinopacific, China, for Denmark’s Evergas, BV revealed in a statement.

The vessel was named on July 14th and is configured for transport of ethane, LPG or LNG. It has options for ethane, LNG and conventional diesel power.

The Dragon vessels were originally designed with a dual-fuel LNG/diesel power utilising two 1,000 cu m LNG tanks on deck powering two Wärtsilä 6L20 DF main engines with a total of 2,112 kW power and two shaft generators with total 3.600 kW power. The ability to also burn ethane was added to allow use of the cargo gas as the vessels are destined initially for transport of ethane from the US to the UK Ineos refineries.
