World's biggest ship for gas transport unveiled

The world's biggest very large gas carrier (VLGC) was unveiled on April 25 in Shanghai, a day ahead of its delivery to Singaporean owner Petredec Global by Chinese manufacturer Jiangnan Shipyard.

The vessel, capable of carrying up to 93,000 cubic meters of liquefied gas, complies with the latest regulations and requirements on emissions in light of eco-friendly concerns, according to Jiangnan Shipyard, subsidiary of the world's largest shipbuilder China State Shipbuilding Corp.

Named Harzand, the vessel is 230 meters long and 36.6 meters wide. It is the first of the fourth-generation VLGC-type ship independently developed and designed by Jiangnan Shipyard. In addition, it is the world's largest dual-fuel liquefied petroleum gas powered VLGC.
