L&S and HHI pioneer first-ever New Eco design VLGC.

The LPG/C Albert was delivered from Hyundai Heavy Industries to Owner Grupo Tomza of Mexico last week, following an impressive naming ceremony this June which included the blessing of the vessel by a Catholic priest.

The 84′ Cbm LPG/C Albert, jointly developed by L&S and HHI, breaks new ground as the first VLGC delivered with the G-type engine in combination with theeco-design hull, promising massive fuel consumption savings of up to 10 metric tonnes per day compared to modern VLGCs on the water today. Every VLGC newbuilding ordered from Korean yards since, some 46 in number, has adopted this configuration.
