Anthony Veder has taken delivery of two 10 000 m3 combined gas carriers, which can transport LNG and petrochemical gases including ethylene (LEG).
With this transaction Anthony Veder expands its fleet to 33 vessels and reinforces its position as a leader in the small scale LNG sector. With eight small scale LNG vessels the company continues its strategy to support the potential for LNG as a marine fuel and in the distribution of LNG for power supply.
The gas carriers were part of the Skaugen fleet, and have been renamed Coral Favia and Coral Fungia. As an integrated shipping company, Anthony Veder will take over the commercial operation and ship management from the current managers.
Jan Valkier, CEO of Anthony Veder says: “The acquisition is consistent with our focus on providing safe and sustainable shipping solutions to our customers in the petrochemical gas segment and in the small scale LNG market. This fleet expansion marks an important step in our continuous commitment to both segments.”
According to Jan Valkier these ships will support our customers in developing the small scale LNG market globally; “after a short yard period to upgrade them to our standards, the vessels are available to our customers in the second quarter of 2019.”
