Wärtsilä Cargo Handling System for Ethylene/Multi Gas Carriers
The ethylene carrier segment has grown during the last years, from small size vessels to handy size, and now also includes a large-scale carrier purpose built for ethane trading.
Wärtsilä Gas Solutions has become the largest supplier of complete cargo handling systems for vessels in this segment, covering the whole range of sizes requested by the market today. These vessels are known for their flexibility and can trade multiple types of cargo, from gas to chemicals. Deliveries also include carriers with LNG capacity and dual-fuel propulsion.
An increasing supply of ethane has created a new segment of shipping, namely the large scale trading of ethane as feedstock to the petrochemical industry. Wärtsilä Gas Solutions supplies complete cargo handling systems to these very large ethane carriers.
