Anthony Veder Boosts Gas Pool Fleet
Anthony Veder, which operate gas tankers in all the segments of gas shipping, from LPG shipping to LNG shipping and from CO2 shipping to ethylene shipping, will take over the commercial management of five gas carriers of Chicago-based GATX Corp.
The vessels will start trading in Anthony Veder’s gas pool in June, the Rotterdam-based shipowner said in a press note.
With this transaction Anthony Veder further strengthens its position as liquified gas shipping company to a fleet of 38 ethylene, LPG and LNG carriers, it said.
The gas carriers previously were part of the Norgas pool and will be renamed starting with Coral, the release noted.
Three out of five vessels will transport liquefied petroleum gas and petrochemical gasses such as ethylene. The other two gas carriers, of 10,000 cbm capacity each, will also transport liquefied natural gas.
Jan Valkier, CEO Anthony Veder said: “We have a strong position in both the LNG and petrochemical market. Expanding our fleet with these five combined gas carriers is a great opportunity with which we can offer our customers even more flexible services. With the addition of the LNG carriers we boost our LNG trading fleet to 10 vessels in sizes between 5,800 cbm and 30,000 cbm.”
