New generation VLGC bolsters fleet

The fleet has been strengthened with the commissioning of a brand new 84,000 cubic metre class tanker for liquefied gas at the end of July 2015. Perseverance V, formerly referred to as hull no. 2765, has been built by Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (HHI) at their modern Gunsan production yard.

Thanks to a comprehensive redesign, the new ship boasts 15 per cent lower fuel consumption compared to the preceding generation of this class. Anticipating requirements, it also comes fully equipped with an on-board ballast water treatment system.
