LPG carrier Gaschem Baltic

Perhaps a first for Halifax, the Liquified Petroleum Gas carrier Gaschem Baltic anchored for bunkers today. En route from Point Tupper, NS, the ship is used to carry both ethylene and LPG (propane, butane) in semi-refrigerated compressed state.

The ship was built in 2004 by Severnav in Drobeta, Romania and measures 7208 grt, 9157 dwt, and has a capacity for 8,424 cubic meters. It is operated under the Liberian flag by the specialized gas carrier company Hartmann Gas Carriers of Leer, Germany. It was launched as Balticgas but renamed before delivery.
