MHI receives another LPG carrier order from Astomos Energy

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries said it has received an order from Astomos Energy Corporation for a very large liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carrier.

The LPG carrier on order is identical to vessels ordered to MHI by Astomos Energy late last year and again this past spring.

Completion and delivery of the ship are scheduled for the second half of 2016.

The newly ordered LPG carrier will measure 230.0 meters in length overall, 36.6m in width and 11.1m in draft, with a gross tonnage of 48,300 tons and deadweight tonnage of 51,100t. It will have the capacity to carry up to 83,000 cubic meters of LPG.

Construction, as with the two previously ordered vessels, will be carried out at MHI’s Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works.
