Evergas, a Copenhagen-headquartered seaborne transporter of liquefied gas, has held a naming ceremony for the first two of its ‘dragon class’ 27.500 cbm multigas liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers at the Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering shipyard in Qidong, China.
The carriers were named JS Ineos Insight and JS Ineos Ingenuity. Both vessels bear a distinct dragon symbolizing their Chinese and Western heritage.
The dragon chosen to sail and protect the Ineos Insight is the King of Fire. The Ineos Ingenuity will be protected by the King of Water.
The vessels are the largest multigas carriers built to date, and they will be used to transport ethane gas from the USA to Europe.
