BW LPG Takes Sixth VLGC from Hyundai Heavy

Singapore-based owner and operator of gas carriers BW LPG Limited has taken delivery of BW Orion, the sixth of eight very large gas carriers (VLGCs) the company had ordered from South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI). 

Including the BW Orion, the company now owns and operates a fleet of 40 vessels, comprising 27 owned VLGCs, eight chartered-in VLGCs, and five owned LGCs.

In addition, BW LPG has six VLGC newbuildings under construction.

BW LPG CEO Martin Ackermann said: “The newbuilding programme plays an important role in our customer commitment to delivering quality transportation of LPG. We are very pleased with the high quality of vessels delivered from HHI and look forward to the continuation of this partnership.”
