Solvang is proud to present one of the most modern Ethylene/LPG carrier fleets in the world. During 2007-2015, 15 new buildings were delivered to the company. This gives us a fleet average age of 7 years.
This segment includes semi-refrigerated, ethylene capable ships from 12,000 to 17,000 cbm. We have six ships in this segment, where one ship is on a long term Time charter, and the remaining five operate in the spot market, or on various COA and other shorter Time Charters.

Age distribution of the Solvang fleet
The greenest and most fuel efficient VLGC ever
Solvang’s new-builds (84k cbm) at Hyundai Heavy Industries are two of the most fuel efficient LPG carriers ever built, in addition they are some of the world’s largest ships for transporting liquefied petroleum gas.
The evolution continues: Solvang’s new 21.000 cbm ECO Ethylene Carriers
Our new class of ethylene carriers will be the first HFO (Heavy Fuel Oil) fuelled TIR III* compliant Ethylene carriers in the world. The vessel specification and detailed design is based on experience with our previous ECO design where we combine cost effective means for minimizing the overall fuel consumption.
