Dorian LPG Takes Delivery of Eighth Newbuild

Liquefied petroleum gas shipping company Dorian LPG has taken delivery of the ECO VLGC Constitution from Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries.

Constitution is Dorian LPG’s eighth newbuilding delivery and will be operated in the newly launched Helios LPG Pool, Dorian said.

Including the newly-delivered Constitution, the shipping company currently owns and operates 11 modern VLGCs and one pressurized LPG vessel.

In addition, Dorian LPG has 11 ECO VLGC newbuildings under construction.

Upon completion of its VLGC newbuilding program in February 2016, as scheduled, 100% of Dorian’s VLGC fleet will be operated as sister ships and the average age of the company’s VLGC fleet will be approximately 1.6 years, while the average age of the current worldwide VLGC fleet is approximately 11.0 years.
