Ethylene and gas/chemical carriers construction, capacity and temperature control
Ethylene carriers are the most sophisticated of the semi-pressurized tankers and have the ability to carry not only most other liquefied gas cargoes but can also transport ethylene fully-refrigerated at its
atmospheric pressure boiling point of -104°C. Designed to carry most liquefied gas cargoes except LNG.
Of this ethylene carrier fleet, about one dozen form a special sub-group of ships able to handle a wide range of liquid chemicals and liquefied gases simultaneously. The ships can load or discharge at virtually all pressurized and refrigerated terminals, making them the most versatile gas carriers in terms of cargo-handling ability.
Many ethylene carriers can also carry LPG cargoes,
which increases their flexibility.They feature cylindrical or bi-lobe, insulated, stainless or low
temperature nickel steel cargo tanks able to carry cargoes at minimum
temperatures of -104ºC and at tank pressures of up to about 6 bar.
The ships can load and discharge at virtually all pressurised and
refrigerated terminals, making them the most versatile LPG carriers in
terms of cargo handling ability. Powerful reliquefaction units are
Cargo capacitiy depends on the trade for which the
vessel was constructed and range from 1,500 - 15,000
