First ‘Dragon’ class LNG powered vessel delivered

The first in a series of 27,500 cbm ‘Dragon’ class vessels ordered by Evergas, is being delivered from the Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering (SOE) shipyard in China today.

The vessel features a Wärtsilä solutions package, including two Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines, Wärtsilä propulsion equipment including the gearbox, two Wärtsilä 20DF auxiliary generating sets, a Wärtsilä LNG fuel system and a Wärtsilä cargo handling system. The order with Wärtsilä was placed in the beginning of 2013.

The ‘Dragon’ class ships are to be chartered by INEOS Europe for the transportation of ethane to Europe from the Mariner East project in the USA. The carriers are purpose built for the transportation of ethane, although they in addition can carry a wide range of petrochemical gases and LPG.

The Dragon class vessels are 180 metres long and 26.6 metres wide with a draft of approximately 9 metres.

They represent the largest ethane carriers in their class in the world, according to Wärtsilä.
