Gas- and Chemical Tankers
On MEYER WERFT more than 50 gas tankers for transporting liquid gases and chemicals were built since 1961. The shipyard has specialized early on building such ships and is ever since a top address for construction such LPG-tankers.
The Dutch shipping company Anthony Veder (Rotterdam) has engaged MEYER WERFR in January 2011 with the construction of a new LNG-tanker. This modern tanker with the name Coral Energy will be equipped with low-emission gas propulsion that meets the highest environmental standards.
In 2006, the shipping company Harpain Reederei GmbH & Co. KG from Hamburg, a joint enterprise of the Harpain Shipping GmbH and the Hansa Hamburg Shipping GmbH & Co KG, engaged MEYER WERFT with the construction of four ethylene-/LPG carriers.
In 1998 and 1999 MEYER WERFT delivered the tankers Clipper Viking and Clipper Harald to the shipping company Solvang ASA. Some years later the shipping company once again engaged MEYER WERFT with the construction of gas tankers. Four 17.000 m3 big gas tankers should be built till 2008.
