HEC selected for Agility ship design

Published by
LNG Industry,

Herbert Engineering (HEC) has been selected by Agility Gas Technology to develop a ship design concept that will capitalise on Agility’s technology portfolio, and facilitate the construction of large atmospheric-pressure cryogenic-liquid chemical transport ships. Specific designs are under development for very large volume liquid ethylene, ethane and propylene transport.

According to Charles Matar, CEO of Agility, “[Agility’s] choice to engage HEC was an easy one since HEC has vast experience in naval architecture and engineering including the design of very large liquefied gas carriers in support of LNG projects.”

Agility’s unique patented technology is designed to significantly improve the efficiency and safety of the transportation of high value gases.
