VLGC Commander Joins Dorian LPG’s Fleet

Connecticut-based liquefied petroleum gas shipping company Dorian LPG has taken delivery of ECO very large gas carrier (VLGC) Commander from Hyundai Heavy Industries.

Featuring 84,000 cbm, ECO VLGC Commander, the company’s 15th newbuilding delivery, will trade in the Helios LPG Pool.

With this delivery, Dorian LPG now owns and operates a fleet of eighteen VLGCs and one pressurized LPG carrier.

The company has four more 84,000 cbm ECO VLGCs under construction, one at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and three at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries. Two of these will be delivered by the end of the year, and the remaining two are expected to join the fleet in 2016.

Dorian LPG took delivery of four VLGCs over the last month, namely ECO VLGC Cratis, Cheyenne, Clermont and Constellation.
