JS Ineos Invention, the final of eight Dragon Class vessels ordered from China’s shipyards by Danish shipping company Evergas, has been delivered to its charterer INEOS.

Back in 2013, Evergas ordered four identical vessels from the Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering shipyard in Qidong, China. The order was further expanded to eight vessels.

Six ships from the batch were built at Sinopacific, while the remaining two, namely, JS Ineos Invention and its sister vessel JS Ineos Intuition, were constructed at Jiangsu New Yangzijiang shipyard in China.

The carriers are purpose built for the transportation of ethane, although they can carry a wide range of petrochemical gasses and LPG.

Each of the eight ships is 180 meters long and 27 meters wide, with a draft of approximately 9 meters.

“With the delivery of … JS Ineos Invention to INEOS earlier this week, the first milestone of the project has been completed and all vessels are now in full operation and transporting Ethane from the US to Europe,” Evergas said.
